"Loosely based on the little-known 1859 Mexican invasion of the United States, Carmen Boullosa's newest novel Texas: The Great Theft is a richly imagined evocation of the volatile Tex-Mex borderland, wrested from Mexico in 1848... Boullosa views the border history through distinctly Mexican eyes, and her sympathetic portrayal each of her wildly diverse characters--Mexican ranchers and Texas Rangers, Comanches and cowboys, German socialists and runaway slaves, Southern belles and dance hall girls--makes her storytelling tremendously powerful and absorbing"--Publisher's description.

Lots and lots of characters, and great word play, but the overall story was weak.
