Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 271-284) and index.
Contents Narrating the non-nation: literary journalism and "illegal" border crossings -- The lost ones: post-gatekeeper border fictions and the construction of cultural trauma -- The Caribbean difference: imagining trans-status communities -- Selling the undocumented: life narratives of unauthorized immigrants -- Unauthorized plots: life writing, transnationalism, and the possibilities of agency -- Undocumented testimony: American DREAMers.
Summary Looking at fiction and nonfiction by citizen journalists and undocumented writers, Caminero-Santangelo finds that latino/a writers increasingly express a sense of solidarity with undocumented immigrants. She also notes, however, that the literary and narrative response is far from heterogeneous.
