Abstract

194 Western American Literature Summer 2010 Mexico to avoid military service during the Korean War and eventually renounces his US citizenship. In discussing these and other works, Schreiber shows in detail how they deviated from conventional depictions of American society and politics. She bases her conclusions on a wide range of secondary sources and on research in numerous archives. Only a handful of Spanish-language sources are cited, however; as a result, the Mexican context is not fully developed. Even so, her book should stand for a long time as the definitive analysis of the defiant cultural productions of Cold War exiles in Mexico. Full Moon at Noontide: A Daughter's Last Goodbye. By Ann Putnam. Dallas, TX: Southern Methodist University Press, 2009. 255 pages, $22.50. Reviewed by Nancy Lord University of Alaska Anchorage Anyone who has traveled with loved ones through modern America's version of old-age death--that is, the years of increasing debilitation; the drugs and operations and medical interventions; the sequences of emergency rooms, hospitals, "rehabilitation" facilities, nursing homes, and hospice care--will find familiar country in Ann Putnam's memoir.
