Time and fate have not been kind to some authors. Metro's reviewers make the case for five writers--from a forgotten Nobel laureate to an unknown pioneer of the avant-garde novel--who deserve a second read.
Lost in the Maize: Guatemala's Miguel Angel Asturias was the father of magic realism and won the Nobel Prize--so why are his books so hard to find?
Audiofile: Reviews of the latest CDs by Plateau, Da Organization, Long Hind Legs and Regurgitator.
Beat Street: San Jose's No Use for a Name survives hit single 'Soulmate' to record again.
Cowboys and Grills: Vaquero's, a new chop house in the West Valley, steaks a claim on carnivores' affections with bold Southwestern flavors.
