    Literary Event with Gustavo Arellano

    Gustavo Arellano's popular Orange County Weekly column "Ask a Mexican!" is now widely syndicated and excerpts are gathered in an acerbic book by the same name. He answers serious, curious and sometimes hateful but mostly irreverent questions about Mexicans. This book compiles what are presumably the best question-and-answer exchanges over the past two years, under topics including language, sex, immigration and food. Arellano wittily defuses bigotry and mocks stereotypes with his often well-reserarched replies. The author's relentless irony and reclamation of derogatory terms is not for the faint of heart, but this approach is a welcome reprieve from common tiptoeing around the fraught subjects of race relations and immigration.
