Summary: When the "counter-canon" itself becomes canonized, it's time to reload. This is the notion that animates New Border Voices, an anthology of recent and rarely seen writing by Borderlands artists from El Paso to Brownsville-and a hundred miles on either side. Challenging the assumption that borderlands writing is the privileged product of the 1970s and '80s, the vibrant community represented in this collection offers tasty bits of regional fare that will appeal to a wide range of readers and students.Among the contributions are:Introduction                   A "Southern Renaissance" for Texas Letters   -José E. LimónThe Texas-Mexico Border: This Writer's Sense of Place   -Rolando Hinojosa-SmithThe Rain Parade               -Paul Pedroza
