Sneak Peek at Tara Chevrestt's No Mas

What goes on in the dark recesses of Lolita's mind?

When my husband tried to control me, berated me with cruel words, dared to declare dominance over me and my life, I grabbed his chin in my hand, looked him in the eye, and said, “No más.


Upon getting work as a seamstress—oh, so beneath me, I, with a college education who because of my nationality was not permitted in the door of many an adobe—I saw the pay exchange hands on payday, the money passed from white hand to white hand and from white hand to brown hand, and noted the difference in the number of bills.

When it was white hand to white hand, it was more.

White hand to brown hand was less.

I said, “No más!

They called me an instigator.

Yes, that was my prison.
