In this insightful book, Morales pins down a hugely diverse community - of American Dominicans, Mexicans, Colombians, Cubans, Salvadorans, and Puerto Ricans - that he insists has more common interests to bring it together than traditions to divide it. He calls this sensibility Spanglish, "a feeling, an attitude that is quintessentially American." His book is the story of groups of Hispanic immigrants struggling to move beyond identity politics into a postmodern melting pot.
