Eat the Mouth that Feeds You

Published by USC Bedrosian Center on

Three votes for Carribean Fragoza’s Eat the Mouth that Feeds You to be something every high school senior is exposed to. This debut collection of short stories is genius, this is late 20th early 21st century Southern California. This is Chicanx, this is Latinx, this is SoCal, this is women, this is body horror, magic realism … in 120 pages.

Ten stories about place and placemaking, about community and how we lift each other up, or tear each other apart. A must read!

“This collection of visceral, often bone-chilling stories centers the liminal world of Latinos in Southern California while fraying reality at its edges. Full of horror and wonder.”Kirkus Reviews
