In their latest collections, Emma Pérez and Alicia Gaspar de Alba explore the social tensions of border life. Growing up between nations, languages, and cultures, the authors further investigate how gender and sexuality intersect with the experience of being a Latina on the border. Queering the Border is a compilation of essays, and Crimes of the Tongue combines essays with short fiction.
