Carmen Aguirre

Carmen Aguirre has lived many lives, all of them to the fullest. At age six she was a Chilean refugee adjusting to life as a Latina in North America. At 18 she was a revolutionary dissident married to a generous-hearted man she couldn't fully love. In her early twenties she fought to find her voice as an actress and to break away from the stereotypical roles thrust upon her — Housekeeper, Hotel Maid, Mexican Hooker #1 — all the while navigating the complex paths of lust and heartbreak. (From Random House Canada)
