[Daniel Olivas] reviews Stephen Gutierrez’s new collection, Live from Fresno y Los (Bear Star Press) in the El Paso Times:

Stephen D. Gutierrez’s new book of short fiction, “Live from Fresno y Los: Stories” (Bear Star Press, $16 paperback), bears witness to the excitement and pain, exhilaration and disappointments, of growing up Chicano in Fresno and Los Angeles during the 1970s.

He renders his world in honest, eloquent brush strokes, creating stories that are simultaneously grounded in a particular culture while remaining universal in their message. He does this without sacrificing his trademark sense of humor.

Read the entire review here. The Live from Fresno y Los may be ordered through your favorite bookstore, or online from Bear Star Press, or from Small Press Distribution. You should also take a peek at the other fine books published by Bear Star Press such as Death of a Mexican and Other Poems by Manuel Paul López. ~Daniel Olivas
