Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Daniel Venegas's novel -- first published in Los Angeles in 1928, and long lost to the public -- portrays, with wit tempered by empathy, the harsher aspects of America during the fabled Jazz Age. With bawdy humor and razor-sharp insight, THE ADVENTURES OF DON CHIPOTE relates the hapless journey of the poor rural farmer Don Chipote de JesAAs MarAAa DomAAnguez, who naively leaves behind his wife and children in Mexico to seek riches in the United States -- where, he is assured, one can sweep up gold dust from the streets and suck the nectar from the tree of life. The author's earthy satire is faithfully rendered by translator Ethriam Cash Brammer; edited and introduced by NicolAA s Kanellos.
