CentroVictoria’s fourth issue of Huizache is its thickest, and arguably its fullest and best so far. As in the past three issues, some of the most nationally distinguished poets and writers are contributors: Rubén Martínez, Sandra Cisneros, Terrance Hayes, Rolando Hinojosa, Carmen Giménez Smith, and Dana Johnson. And then there are the soon-to-be well-known: Sheryl Luna, Yona Harvey, Maceo Montoya, Rio Cortez, Steven Ramirez, Marcelo Hernandez Castillo, and Laurie Ann Guerrero. And they are only a few! As always, we are especially thrilled to give you our much anticipated cover art by infamous cartoonist—and soon-to-be yet more notorious when his animated TV show “Bordertown” appears this coming spring on the Fox network—Lalo Alcaraz. How can we not love that Huizache has its own punk Frida?? A magazine rooted and produced in the Latino West, Huizache represents the finest and most beautiful of those who are not born and bred on the right land, in the right cities, who are too often and too dismissively ignored. Huizache proudly highlights those whose homes too many fly over or drive past quickly and distractedly, missing, as in the desert, the stunning complexity in the brown soil.
