Seattle University professor Gabriella Gutiérrez y Muhs, editor of Rebozos de Palabras: An Helena Maria Viramontes Critical Reader (University of Arizona Press), speaks about the work of this important scholar, activist, and academic, probably best known for her novel, Under the Feet of Jesus, as well as for her cultural criticism. Rebozos de Palabras (named in honor of the rebozo or shawl Viramontes wears to her readings) collects new work by critics and scholars and addresses the evolution of the Chicana image in her body of work.
