Imaginary Lines by Linton Robinson

indie ebook cover

Tales, interviews, and culture/culinary essays that drew fans in border region papers and Harpers magazine, "Imaginary Lines" gives a warm, humorous, sometimes dark portrait of frontiers: not just of the Mexico/California border, but of many invisible fault lines in the human condition: rich/poor, third/first world, home/foreign, male/female.

A rare collaboration between two writers across some of the more obvious lines - Catholic Mexican mother Ana Maria Corona and jaded American muckraker Linton Robinson - "Imaginary Lines" transforms the life stories of maids, matadors, gigolos, cooks, gamblers, and con men into metaphors for the vague but palpable fault lines that separate us, yet bind us together.

"Imaginary Lines" is a book celebrated by cover artist Victor Cauduro, one of Mexico's finest and most celebrated painters, and Pulitzer nominee Luis Urrea, who considers it a "well guided tour" to the labyrinths of intercultural interface.
