What Readers Say about Irene Blea’s Recent Novel
Beneath the Super Moon
It is my honor to endorse Dr. Irene Blea as a friend and colleague. The internationally known author, university educator, community activist, and public speaker shares her lifetime of knowledge in Beneath the Super Moon. We increase both our own knowledge and enjoyment from reading her third Suzanna novel.

Dr. Irene Blea enlightened us about the violence against young women in our communities, about the intricacies, the blood, pain, and deep love we sustain through 500 years of colonization in New Mexico with her novel, Daughters of the West Mesa. In Beneath the Super Moon she informs us about the destructive role of shame upon the individual and the community. The importance of Blea’s work is that she deconstructs the culture showing us that the pride, sometimes hiding truths, can kill us. Irene Blea is, in my mind, the Chicana novelist of these times. I have long awaited this voice. She liberates us with her bravery.
