Snapshots from the Edge

With just ten hours to do it (that’s how many babysitting hours I have to write this week), I am finishing the first draft of Beautiful You this week so that I can start the process of editing, ordering, and writing the front and back matter of the book (that means introduction, acknowledgments, user’s guide, notes, etc)– all to be done and shipped out to my editor by December 30th.  So, I’m Focused Rosie this week which means that I won’t be able to do a whole lotta blogging.  What you’ll get instead?  Little snapshots from the edge of our world…

Where you will find me this week. That stack of notecards on the left hand side of the computer? Notes for the pages I'll be writing. On the right side? My general to do list. Those are the machinations of Focused Rosie.

Where we will find Lola if it rains like the weatherman is predicting for a couple days this week.

Where we will find baby

Here’s to ‘making work’ this week!

What does it mean to be beautiful in America? For years, pop culture has insisted that beautiful women are tall, thin, and blonde. So what do you do if your mirror reflects olive skin, raven hair, and a short build? Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina offers a provocative account of the struggles and triumphs of Latina forced to reconcile these conflicting realities. Rosie Molinary combines her own experience with the voices of hundreds of Latinas who grew up in the US navigating issues of gender, image, and sexuality. This empathetic ethnography exemplifies the ways in which our experiences are both profoundly individualistic and comfortingly universal.
