“Smart and unflinchingly honest and brilliantly voiced, All We Had is a remarkably
accomplished and compelling first novel. Annie Weatherwax's other artistic
persona as a visual artist has made her an instant expert at one of the most
challenging but fundamental skills of a fiction writer: the ability to render the mo-
ment to moment sensual thereness of a scene. I can't wait to see what she writes
next.” —Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of A Good Scent from a

Were. All. We. Had: Reflections. on. Becoming. Biliterate. Josué M. González
Josué González's educational and literacy journey began in the Rio Grande
Valley of Texas where Spanish played an essential role in everyday life, and

they were a vital part of the social fabric of society. In these sociocultural contexts

Elsie Perry Payne: We realiy did have, despite our deprivations. everything we
really needed. We cared for each other. We helped each other. We belonged to
each other. All we had was each other, and that's all we needed. When I began
making this book, I perceived a problem. The story I wanted the book to tell was
someone else's story, about something — the lives of Black people, their
distinctive culture — I knew nothing about, perhaps could not understand. I was
white and they ...

The closeness which can develop between two people who, on the surface, appear too different or too distant can turn into something which defines us as a human being. Such is the relationship between Dodi and her daughter-in-law, Eva.

Really way back then we had to get up and change channels. Out there. Out
where we lived were there even three channels? If there were, they were fuzzy
and not on all day and all night. This was way before MTV. When Laurence Welk,
when Ed Sullivan ruled the airways. And we, we were captive. We were held
subject to what we were offered. And I swear I know we were at that, at that time
twenty, thirty years behind the world. I was digging, digging potatoes. Shoveling
sidewalks ...

We had to keep the boat outside the surf, and haul both skins and flesh on board
with a line; a good deal of water came with them, but there was no help for it. And
then we had to row north along the shore against the wind and sea as hard as we
could. It was very tough work. The wind had increased, and it was all we could do
to make headway against it. Seals were diving round us, white whales coming
and going, but we had no eyes for them now. Suddenly Henriksen called out that

and the occasional frog were all we heard. The water in the marshes came up to
our ankles. It was cold, and a light north wind began to blow a little stronger. That
was a blessing for us, because it swept away the clouds of mosquitoes. I had lost
one of my gloves, the left one, I didn't know where. I had realized it before we left
the second false scent for the dogs. I couldn't take my hand out of my pocket, the
mosquitoes had bitten it so much. Ten minutes, and Brito hadn't returned.

TWeWe week had past. I was in my car heading downtown. The traffic was
practically at a stand still. I could only imagine there was an accident up head. I'd
had my gastro appointment and they told me my stomach was healing well. They
said as long as I kept taking the medication and following the dietary restrictions
laid out for me I should be fine. It was some relief, one less thing to worry about. I'
