The Life of Ximena Godoy  
Aug. 2, 2014
Author:  Graciela Limon
Category:  Fiction: General/Other
Description:  The Life of Ximena Godoy is the latest novel to come from the writing desk of critically acclaimed and award-winning Chicana/Latina author Graciela Limón.

REVENGE AND MURDER define Ximena Godoy's story. But before that deadly happening, her tale covers a lifetime that spans the first half of the 20th century, a tumultuous time of revolution, a deadly epidemic, bootlegging and dance halls, economic depression, uprooting and migration. Always a voyager, hardly ever a settler, she morphs from sheltered child into a complex woman who inhabits two worlds, Mexico and America. As the story of her life unfolds it reveals Ximena Godoy as a passionate and fiercely independent woman, quick to love unconditionally, but just as prepared to cling obsessively to revenge when love is betrayed even though it leads her into the murky world of murder and criminal justice.

Graciela Limón is the author of several novels, including The River Flows North (2009); Erased Faces (2001), which was awarded the 2002 Gustavus Myers Outstanding Book Award; The Day of the Moon (1999); Song of the Hummingbird (1996); The Memories of Ana Calderón (1994, 2001); and In Search of Bernabé (1993), which as a finalist for the Art Seidenbaum First Novel Award and was named a "Notable Book of the Year" by The New York Times Book Review. Limón is Professor Emeritus of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, where she served as a professor of U.S. Latina/o Literature and Chair of the Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies.
