Críticas:

"These chronicles are truly hemispheric, postmodern memories written in a ludic, singular Spanglish that encapsulates the transnational, nomad vivencias of a Jewish Chicana from Califas, a citizen of the Hispanic world. Original, powerful and profound."--Frances Aparicio, University of Illinois at Chicago "Susana Chavez-Silverman isn't a code-switcher but a switch-burner. Her "Killer Cronicas" is an astonishing example of linguistic mestizaje. It's also a prophetic statement: north and south are no longer applicable coordinates to understand the Americas. They have merged into a single, gravitational order where languages are in constant mutation."--Ilan Stavans "Susana Chavez-Silverman's "Killer Cronicas: Bilingual Memories" is a masterfully written memoir in the form of "chronicles" exploring issues of memory, family relationships, and language. Her philosophical excursions on writing, intertextuality, and life in general are brilliantly and humorously rendered in a bilingual format of code-switching that evidences a superb knowledge of English and Spanish. This linguistic dexterity enables the cronicas to flow effortlessly from one language to another and easily captivates the reader as he/she travels with the author in a most enjoyable and fascinating journey from California to South Africa, Argentina, Spain, and Chile."-- Maria Herrera-Sobek, associate vice chancellor and Luis Leal Endowed Chair, University of California, Santa Barbara "These chronicles are truly hemispheric, postmodern memories written in a ludic, singular Spanglish that encapsulates the transnational, nomad vivencias of a Jewish Chicana from Califas, a citizen of the Hispanic world.

Killer Cronicas is a testament to the maturing sense of global and pan-Latin citizenship being claimed by Chicanos and U.S.-born Latinos in the American West. Combine this with such innovation in language, and her book may one day be regarded as a refreshing turning point in Latino literature, maybe even the truly bilingual literary voice that the pioneering Chicana critic Gloria Anzaldua called for."--Daniel Hernandez, Los Angeles Times "Susana Chavez-Silverman isn't a code-switcher but a switch-burner.

Reseña del editor:

A woman living and communicating in multiple lands, Susana Chavez-Silverman conveys her cultural and linguistic displacement in a humorous, bittersweet, and even tangible way in this truly bilingual literary work. These meditative and lyrical pieces combine poignant personal confession, detailed daily observation, and a memorializing drive that shifts across time and among geocultural spaces. The author's inventive and flamboyant use of Spanglish, a hybrid English-Spanish idiom, and her adaptation of the confessional ""cronica"" make this memoir compelling and powerful. Killer Cronicas confirms that there is no Latina voice quite like that of Susana Chavez-Silverman. Killer Cronicas includes a chapter that was awarded the el Andar Prize for Literary Excellence in the category of personal memoir.
