Oxnard-bred Michele Serros, one of California's sharpest and funniest writers, has an essay in the current Washington Post Sunday magazine titled "Boundary Issues." It's a short narrative about her therapist, her therapist's "housekeeper," and la migra. Serros also did a radio commentary recently for Latino USA about the two Fridas. No, not the ones in the iconic painting by Frida Kahlo. Serros draws a post-Fridamania riff about the Mexican painter and ... Frida from ABBA. Some strong assertions in there, but I'll leave it up to you to pounce upon them. Listen here.
* Know your Serros. Re-discover the hilariously good "How to Be a Chicana Role Model." When I gave it to my little sister Erika to read when she was in middle school, she devoured it in a couple of days. Everyone does.
