Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. HEART-SHAPED COOKIES, David Rice's new collection, consists of seven short stories from his first book, three stories reprinted from various anthologies, nine flash fiction pieces, and a play by Mike D. García based on Rice's short story "She Flies." Rice skillfully balances humor and sensitivity in his writing, and his imaginative tales and colorful characters appeal to young readers on many levels. Culture and place figure prominently in these narratives; most are set in the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas and explore issues encountered in contemporary Mexican American life near the border. The author's distinctive wit and style are apparent throughout the collection and are sure to secure his place in Chicano literature.
