Blurring the borders between literature, journalism, essay, history, memoir and short story, Las Nalgas de JLo is a non-fiction collection of columns, articles, reviews, and poems, most written by Renaud González between 1995-2005 when she was an independent columnist for the San Antonio Express-News. While most of the 61 columns and articles included in this book were published in the San Antonio Express-News, many were published in other national newspapers and magazines, and some were unpublished due to their content. A “Disclaimer” as an introduction, and an "A-diosa-tion" and Afterword as a Despedida are also included in this collection.


Las Nalgas de JLo is a great textbook/reader for courses in Chicana/o Studies and Chicana Feminism. 290 pages / $24
