Brides and Sinners in El Chuco

T he San Antonio Express-News ]. The Texas border town of El Paso, nostalgically referred to as "El Chuco" by residents who have lived there for generations, straddles two countries and cultures distinctly different at first glance, but eerily similar in the stories of its inhabitants. Members of two worlds, yet assimilated to none, the fictional characters of Brides And Sinners in El Chuco Christine Granados' debut collection of short stories, reveal their tales of dysfunctional relationships, unrealized dreams and the emotionally harsh realities of life with blunt force that lingers long after you have put the book down. In these 14 stories, Granados introduces us to households of working-class men, fragile but resilient women, and children who, witnessing pain and suffering under the roof of a home that should offer sanctuary, dream dreams of better tomorrows while living in the confusion of today.
