Good Books About Mexico and Mexicans

There are many good books written about Mexico. There are also some bad ones. I don't recommend a lot, but do try to alert you to offbeat books that you might not hear of elsewhere. I don't care if you are self-published or one of a stable of writers with a big house. If your story has merit, I will promote it.
