Loving in the War Years : Lo Que Nunca Paso por Sus Labios Hardback


  • Information


An updated edition combining two classic works of Chicana and queer literature, with a new introduction by renowned writer and luminary, Cherríe Moraga. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of its original publication, this updated edition of Loving in the War Years combines Moraga’s classic memoir with The Last Generation: Poetry and Prose, resulting in a challenging, inspiring, and insightful touchstone for artists and activists—and for anyone striving to foster care and community. Cherríe Moraga’s powerful memoir remains as urgent as ever.

She explores the intersections of her Chicana and lesbian identities, moving gracefully between poetry and prose, Spanish and English, personal narratives and political theory.

Moraga recounts navigating the world largely as an outsider, circling the interconnected societies around her from a distant yet observant perspective.

Ultimately, however, her writing serves as a bridge between her cultures, languages, family, and herself, enabling her to look inward to forge connections from otherwise inaccessible parts of her interior world, to show how deep self-awareness and compassionate engagement with one’s surroundings are key to building global solidarity among people and political movements.
