"performing mexicanidad"

for such a long time i had planned on titling my book "unsettling comforts." but one's particular likes and wants don't always match-up with the likes and wants of those in charge of the actual book's publication. so, after many-a-month hiatus, i come out of the woodwork to announce the birth of my first book-length publication: performing mexicanidad: vendidas y cabareteras on the transnational stage. by the way, i actually like the title that was used for the publication, specially the subtitle...vendidas y cabareteras has a nice ring in my ears! i want to thank everyone that made this book's birth possible--it's been a long time gestating--specially the fierce female artists whose work inspired the writing.
