Strawberry Fields, A book of short stories
(McAllen, TEXAS) –This holiday season make a smart buy. Pick up a Strawberry Fields for a loved one or a friend.
A perfect gift for a book lover this holiday season Strawberry Fields is available in paperback or on kindle.
Strawberry Fields, A book of short stories tells a tale 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 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 and Strawberry Fields is his first fictional work.
