Introduction: this is how we do it in the OC (don't call it that) -- Flying potatoes, anchor babies, and kidnapped teen brides: the Mirandas go North -- "Our climate is faultless": constructing America's perpetual Eden -- His fake green card, her tomato packing -- Where all the good idiot Republicans go to die -- The Philadelphia story -- Gimme that OC religion -- Genesis and the Stetson -- The beaner-bashing capital of America -- My Mexican awakening -- The "real" real Orange County Reel, or: about those stupid television shows, why Orange county is "hip," and what's really real and what's somewhat real--for Real! -- Becoming "The Mexican" -- Insert concluding Orange cliché here.
Nationally bestselling author, syndicated columnist, and the spiciest voice of the Mexican-American community, Gustavo Arellano delivers the hilarious and poignant follow-up to Ask a Mexican, his critically acclaimed debut. Orange County not only weaves Gustavo's family story with the history of Orange County and the modern Mexican-immigrant experience but also offers sharp, caliente insights into a wide range of political, cultural, and social issues.
