A woman living and communicating in multiple lands, Susana Chavez-Silverman conveys her cultural and linguistic displacement in a humorous, bittersweet, and even tangible way in this truly bilingual literary work. These meditative and lyrical pieces combine poignant personal confession, detailed daily observation, and a memorializing drive that shifts across time and among geocultural spaces. The author's inventive and flamboyant use of Spanglish, a hybrid English-Spanish idiom, and her adaptation of the confessional ""cronica"" make this memoir compelling and powerful. Killer Cronicas confirms that there is no Latina voice quite like that of Susana Chavez-Silverman. Killer Cronicas includes a chapter that was awarded the el Andar Prize for Literary Excellence in the category of personal memoir.
