Gulf Dreams is the story of a Chicana who comes of age in a racist, rural Texas town. Through memory, the protagonist reexamines her unresolved obsessive love for a young woman, her best friend since childhood. ‘A powerful, gripping, and disturbing story of passion and betrayal, survival and vengeance, compulsion and resilience, told in arresting images and fragmented, dreamlike narrative. ‘-Teresa de Lauretis, professor of History of Consciousness, UC Santa Cruz. ‘This amalgam of life history, creative non-fiction, psychoanalytic treatise and fictionalized memoirs is a welcome addition to queer literature. ‘-Gloria Anzalduacute;a, author of Borderlands.
