A stage adaptation of the novel Their Dogs Came With Them by Helena María Viramontes will be showcased at the Borderlands Theater in Arizona next month. Broadway World describes Their Dogs Came with Them as "a new play about the destruction and displacement of a Mexican-American community, roaming dogs, quarantines, earthmovers and ancient voladores.”
Viramontes is the Goldwin Smith Professor of English and Director of Creative Writing at Cornell University. She is the author of The Moths and Other Stories and two novels Under the Feet of Jesus and Their Dogs Came With Them. She is currently at work on her third novel, The Cemetery Boys.
