Nash Candelaria Author- SECOND COMMUNION

SECOND COMMUNION

memoir by Nash Candelaria

This memoir by renowned Chicano writer Nash Candelaria focuses on how and why he chose to become a writer. As he investigates his family’s more than 300-year history in New Mexico, the author undertakes a more intimate journey that leads him to understand truths about himself: why he chose to become a writer and why he chose the topics he did. Part family history and part self-examination, SECOND COMMUNION is a must-read for aspiring writers, those interested in Southwest history, and students and teachers of Chicano literature.

Nash Candelaria has been described as the historical novelist of the Hispanic people of New Mexico. His four novels, hailed as landmarks in Hispanic literature, include MEMORIES OF THE ALHAMBRA (1977), a seminal novel in Chicano literature, and NOT BY THE SWORD (1982), an American Book Award winner. His short stories have appeared in a number of literary magazines and anthologies. His two published collections of short stories are THE DAY THE CISCO KID SHOT JOHN WAYNE (1988) and UNCIVIL RIGHTS AND OTHER STORIES (1989) He and his wife live in Santa Fe, New Mexico
