Abstract

This paper examines the works of Roberto Castillo and Luis Humberto Crosthwaite as literary articulations of a new vision of Tijuana. It begins by discussing historical images of the city common in the United States and Mexico, and then explains the recent cultural renaissance of Tijuana. Finally, it looks in detail at the fiction and poetry of Castillo and Crosthwaite, analyzing their use of literature to simultaneously protest against stereotypes of the border and celebrate the diverse possibilities of this energetic space.
