A Tear for an Artist

Isabel Cabanillas de la Torre, an artist in the Mexican border city Juarez, was fascinated with eyes. She liked to paint them. In one self-portrait, a tear dropped from an eye.

The Book Drug Cartels Hate

Jeanine Cummins could not have asked for greater accolades for her new novel, “American Dirt,” about a mother fleeing with her child in Mexico after a drug cartel has killed her journalist husband and fifteen others in a not untypical massacre. “Marvelous,” “masterful,” “dazzling,””riveting,” “a Grapes of Wrath for our times,” referring to John Steinbeck’s […]

The Unmentionable Drug Cartels
