'Lines on the Border' - Author / Book Presentation with Prof. Marc Zimmerman

Crossing the border between short story collection and novel, Lines on the Border portrays the evolution of the protagonist, Ben, a young and confused Jewish American, through his interactions with friends, lovers, and others on and beyond the San Diego-Tijuana crossing point. The work depicts failed romances, journeys south, moments of colonial and sexual exploitation, error and re-adjustment, in an search for genuine contact and understanding. Written with humor, irony and a feel for border pain, Lines is a gift for fiction lovers and those interested in Mexican border themes long before the current deportation raids and talk of building a wall. This special event will feature the participation of L.A-based Salvadoran Writer, Carolina Rivera Escamilla, and Chilean singer-guitarist, Angela Roa.

Author and editor of some thirty books, Marc Zimmerman is University of Illinois in Chicago and University of Houston Emeritus Professor. His fiction books include Stores of Winter (Houston 2005); Martín and Marvin (Chicago, 2016); and La penisola non trovata (Milan, 2017).
