Description: Twice married, once divorced and once widowed, Soveida Dosamantes is a survivor. She is currently writing a handbook for waitresses called The Book of Service, a compendium of lessons she has learned working for thirty years at El Farol Mexican Restaurant in the rural Southwest. Looking back on her career, Soveida comes to understand the meaning of service in her own life and the role of women in a machismo culture and in the interconnected lives of work and family. Here is a rich chorus of Latino voices and a retinue of wayward husbands and lovers, from her grandmother, Mama Lupita, to Mama's elderly servant, Oralia; from her estranged parents, Luardo and Dolores, to the lovelorn restaurant manager Larry Larragoite, to the waiters and waitresses of El Farol, even its cough-syrup-swilling cook, Lavel. A novel of antic humor and sobering pain, of nachos and nourishment of every kind, Face of an Angel straddles old worlds and new, Mexican, American, and Mexican-American, to explore one woman's acceptance of her true vocation, her true love, and, ultimately, her true self.
