From the TALK series, Between Fences
Discussion Leader: Gene T. Chavez

Boyle juxtaposes two Los Angeles couple's lives: one of privilege; the other of illegal immigration. Boyle's plot brings the two families into tragic collision, exposing issues of class divides, problems of illegal Mexican immigration, and environmental degradation. As the United States builds hundreds of miles of fence along the Mexican border, his novel has never been timelier. 355 pp.
