Zone of Tolerance by David E. Stuart
Book DescriptionAbout the 'big girls' of the 1970s Guaymas night club district and the conflicting needs, wants, realities, and illusions at the core of the 'viejas' ('working' girls) lives. Stuart focuses on the exotic fallen angels of the once fabled Club Rio Rita in Guaymas's Zona de Tolerancia (red-light district). Moving, funny, and at times tragic, the layered dimensions of their world are mesmerising. He also continues the stories of his working class friends and compadres in Guaymas, some closer to him than his stateside family. Their struggles with life on the streets provide a rich and uplifting counterpoint to daily life in the Zona. "Zone of Tolerance" is important, not only for its human and historical context, but precisely because it is a snapshot of a long-gone, little known slice of Mexican life. In this volume, as in the first, Stuart brings his unique perspective to bear on people seldom written about and a world rarely revealed.
