Read full description of the books:
In sticking with a citrus theme, I'm going to call Orange County a "Meyer lemon." Unlike the traditional lemon, a Meyer lemon (like this book) is a combination of bitter, sour, and sweet that packs a real punch. Arellano's book does the same thing - a hint of bitter and sour, some sweet parts, and a real hilarious punch. Maybe you have to live or work in or near Orange County to really get the whole book, but I definitely liked the upside down (read: liberal) take on this rock red California island perched next to bluer than blue Los Angeles. I imagined this book pissed many a person off, and that's a good thing.

Read information about the authorGustavo Arellano is the author of ¡Ask a Mexican!, a nationally syndicated weekly column published by Orange County's alternative weekly OC Weekly. It was first published in 2004 as a one-time spoof, but it ended up becoming one of the weekly's most popular columns.
Every week, readers would submit their questions based on Mexicans, including their customs, labor issues, and illegal immigration. Arellano responds to these questions in a politically incorrect manner often starting with the words "Dear Gabacho."
On May 1, 2007, Reuters featured the column on its news homepage under the "Oddly Enough" heading.
