Book Description Penguin Books, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for Alfredo Corchado's Midnight in Mexico : "Electrifying. the portrait that Corcahdo paints is all the more heartrending for Mexico''s extraordinary promise. Security and the drug war that are Mexico''s biggest worries. watching Corchado struggle in the crucible, trying to do the right thing by his two homelands, one can''t help being reminded. the dawn that will follow this ''midnight in Mexico'' will come only if we take some of the responsibility. The health of this neighbor is integral to our own." Washington Post "Corchado looks at Mexico''s darkest hour. And doesn''t blink." Alan Cheuse, Dallas Morning News "A riveting account that features many of the places and personalities that have been central to Mexico''s recent nightmare.Corchado is a dogged and savvy journalist who manages to be everywhere a good reported should be. A unique binational perspective on the two countries he calls home, expressing admiration for the determination of U.S. and Mexican officials to fight a shared problem by taking on shared responsibility." San Francisco Chronicle "[Corchado''s] solid research and detailed understanding of the forces at work there make the book an important one for anyone who cares about Mexico, and his personal struggle with his homeland make it a raw, compelling read." Miami Herald "The secret revealed at [ Midnight in Mexico''s ] conclusion is more compelling than Citizen Kane's ''Rosebud''. I won't spoil the ending here, but you will shiver when you get there, and you may even weep. Either way, you will understand Corchado's need to stay in Mexico and his need to bring us stories that we need to read." Texas Observer "An excellent, first-hand description of what a journalist must endure to report critically on Mexico." El Paso Times "Having lived and reported through four presidencies. His own story is emblematic. People are willing to do anything about Latin America other than read about it, or so it''s been said. This is one book about Latin America that merits attention." Kirkus "This book is about the blood-drenched borderlands that divide Alfredo Corchado''s two countries, Mexico and the United States, which still dominate his own life. Told against the backdrop of the horrifically violent drug wars that have turned much of Mexico into a charnel land, Corchado shares his own story and that of his family with a moving degree of honesty and acuity. Corchado''s love for his immigrant family and pride in what they have achieved is palpable, yet weighted down by a sense of what they, and Mexico, may have lost forever in the exchange. In many ways, Midnight in Mexico stands as a raw, real-life parable for the paradoxes of the Mexican-American experience, and it is both a riveting and gut-wrenching read." Jon Lee Anderson, author of Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life and The Fall of Baghdad " Midnight in Mexico is the story of a journalist''s dangerous and notable efforts to report on Mexico''s horrible drug wars. The book brings a special clarity, the clarity of the personal and particular, to a very important and confusing subject, and it is in itself an absorbing story, marked by careful attention to fact and also by the author''s deep love for his homeland. Mr. Corchado is the kind of reporter and writer who revives one''s faith in journalism." Tracy Kidder, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Strength in What Remains "Anyone who wants to learn about Mexico on the inside, especially how the United States affects it, illegally and legally, will learn much from this sharply perceptive and moving account." John Womack Jr., Robert Woods Bliss Professor of Latin American History and Economics, Harvard University "Alfredo Corchado is the top American journalist covering Mexico today. His life embodies the complex blending of the U.S. and Mexico. Corchado's knowledge of the Mexican political system, the drug trade, and modern Mexican society.
