Miraculous Day of Amalia Goomez by John Rechy
Book DescriptionIn The Miraculous Day of Amalia Gomez, Amalia Gomez thinks she sees a large silver cross in the sky. A miraculous sign, perhaps, but one the down-to-earth Amalia does not trust. Through Amalia, we take a vivid and moving tour of the "other Hollywood," populated by working-class Mexican Americans, as John Rechy blends tough realism with religious and cultural fables to take us into the life of a Chicano family in L.A. Epic in scope and vision, The Miraculous Day of Amalia Gomez is classic Rechy.

Books By Author John Rechy
About My Life and the Kept Woman, Paperback / softback (March 2009)
Rechy, author of "City of Night," writes openly about his life as a Mexican-American, in a powerful story that bears witness to some of the most riotous changes of the past century. Resonating with fierce individualism and utter candor, the work presents the portrait of a man who forged his own path.
Beneath the Skin, Paperback (December 2004)
The bestselling author of the groundbreaking "City of Night," his 1963 novel about the underworld of gay male prostitution, collects more than four decades of his outspoken essays on topics ranging from the birth of the sexual liberation movement to the emergence of AIDS to sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.
Bodies and Souls, Paperback / softback (September 2001)» View all books by John Rechy
In Bodies and Souls, Rechy paints a portrait of modern Los Angeles, "the most spiritual and physical of cities," where we meet characters like Amber, a porn superstar; Manny Gomez, a Chicano caught up in the punk-rock scene; and Dave Clinton, an aging male stripper. Epic in scope and vision, Bodies and Souls is classic Rechy.
