This is Mexico is a collection of essays on the often magical and mysterious—and sometimes heartrending—workings of everyday life in Mexico, written from the perspective of an American expatriate.
By turns humorous and poignant, Merchasin’s stories provide an informed look at Mexican culture and history, exploring everything from healthcare, Mexican-style, to religious rituals, and from the educational role of the telenovela to the cultural subtleties of the Spanish language.
Written with a clear for details, a warm heart for Mexico, and a lively sense of humor, This is Mexico is an insider's look at the joys, sorrows, and challenges of life in this complex country.
