Book Review of John Rechy's After the Blue Hour

  • Author(s): Gonzalez, Omar
  • et al.
Abstract

Omar Gonzalez provides a brief book review of gay Chicano novelist John Rechy’s latest book After the Blue Hour. Gonzalez’s review, “The Nepantla of John Rechy,” delivers an overview of the breadth of work by Rechy.Through a Nepantla framework, Gonzalez suggests that Rechy’s latest piece of literature not only problematizes the themes of erotic desire and domination but also establishes itself as yet another important contribution for gay Chi- canx literature.
