dc.description.abstractEyes on the Platter describes thirteen years of Lucia Landaverde's life after her arrival in Los Angeles as an undocumented immigrant from El Salvador. Lucia's struggles and joys are revealed through the intermingling of narrative scenes and prayers to Saint Lucy her patron saint and namesake. It is the ambition of the novel-in-progress to divulge Lucia's interiority through her relationship to Saint Lucy. The novel also aspires to examine social, cultural and political issues within the Latino community of Los Angeles in the late 1970's and 1980's. The dichotomy of the public versus the domestic sphere within the urban landscape was also considered in the writing of the narrative. Concepts about the body are also present within the text.en_US
