The novel Chicano, by Richard Vasquez, was the first novel about Mexican Americans to be released by a major publisher (Doubleday, 1970). It was widely read in high schools and universities during the 1970s and is now recognized as a breakthrough novel. As noted by scholar Juan Bruce-Novoa, Chicano novels allowed for androgynous and complex characters "to emerge and facilitate a dialogue on nonnormative sexuality" and that homosexuality was "far from being ignored during the 1960s and 1970s" in Chicano literature, although homophobia may have curtailed portrayals of openly gay characters during this era.

A bestseller when it was published in 1970 at the height of the Mexican-American civil rights movement, Chicano unfolds the fates and fortunes of the Sandoval family, who flee the chaos and poverty of the Mexican Revolution and begin life anew in the United States.

Patriarch Hector Sandoval works the fields and struggles to provide for his family even as he faces discrimination and injustice. Of his children, only Pete Sandoval is able to create a brighter existence, at least for a time. But when Pete's daughter Mariana falls in love with David, an Anglo student, it sets in motion a clash of cultures. David refuses to marry Mariana, fearing the reaction of his family and friends. Mariana, pregnant with David's child, is trapped between two worlds and shunned by both because of the man she loves. The complications of their relationship speak volumes -- even today -- about the shifting sands of racial politics in America.

In his foreword, award-winning author Rubén Martínez reflects on the historical significance of Chicano's initial publication and explores how cultural perceptions have changed since the story of the Sandoval family first appeared in print.

Excellent insight into the lives and difficulties of several generations of early Mexican immigrants. Fascinating, sometimes both gritty and hopeful.
I was absolutely star struck by this book! I cried, laughed but the entire time I felt like I was living it. I was pretty sad when it ended. It's an amazing book and as a young Mexican girl myself it taught me a lot about my people. I recommend this book 110%
A novel about Mexican Americans through generations of a particular family. Well written, emotional at times, with a twist at the end.
best book i've read in a long time. now I understand the plight of the immigrants
Interesting insight into the life of Mexican-Americans from the middle 1800's until current. Easy to read, entertaining and well written.
Great book. One of the best novels I have every read.
Nice story about Chicanos. Shows the racism and hard ship they endured and the close family ties they all had.
You always hear people say a book was so good you cant put it down. . This is one of those books.
