Chuy Ramirez Debuts Strawberry Fields, A Book of Short Stories
On Amazon

Book of Short Stories

(McAllen, Texas) – Strawberry Fields, a Book of Short Stories, by McAllen, Texas attorney and fiction writer, Chuy Ramirez, is officially on Amazon. Go to www.amazon.com and readers can locate Strawberry Fields via hardcover, paperback, and digitally on KINDLE.

The book signing will follow a presentation of excerpts Ramirez has selected to read.
“Strawberry Fields tells the tales of three generations of a Mexican family as they make their way from Northern Mexico to South Texas,” says Ramirez. The book is written like a novel but readers can read chapters as independent vignettes. The book is also a murder mystery. Most of the focus, though, is on that period in the 1960s when the “baby boomers” begin to come of age. Strawberry Fields is symbolic of both the strawberry fields in Michigan at which farm workers labored to improve their lot, as well as an abstract place that represents the dreams and ambitions of a young Joaquin, the protagonist.

Ramirez himself grew up in the Rio Grande Valley, attended Pan American University in Edinburg, Texas and is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin School of Law. He practices law in McAllen. Strawberry Fields is his first fictional work.
