CARIBOO CAFE PDF

Images of fragmentation further develop in the first part of the story, told from the point of view of Sonya, who has lost her key to the apartment she shares with her brother Macky and her father. She must wait on the steps with her brother until her father returns because "the four walls of the apartment were the only protection against the streets" Not only has Sonya been separated from her key, which she considers her "guardian saint" 61 , but the children have been cut off from the central place of safety and unity in their lives, the place where their family is whole. This opening image of the children locked out of the apartment marks the beginning of the breaking apart of the nucleus of the family.

My son and I. Each character tells a part of the story, never chronologically overlapping. What makes this shifting of perspectives interesting, though, is the information that Viramontes leaves out in each perspective. There are hints that the kids are Sonya and Macky, such as their age and her protectiveness, but we have no idea who the woman is -- she seems to have appeared from nowhere.

With gaps of information like that one, the story is told without directly being told. My interpretation is that she is aware, but is very delusional in her misery and chooses to ignore that fact. It makes an interesting statement about the lengths to which people will go to heal heartbreak -- pretty damn far. All she wants is for her and her son to go home. The minor detail that Macky is not her son is irrelevant, because she is so desperate.

True to its indirect style, the story leaves the ending open. You get the feeling that the mother has lost, but what will she do next? Will she simply continue looking for a replacement Geraldo? Will she herself get taken away by the police? And what about Sonya and Macky? My question from the start was why they were wandering in the first place -- did their parents forget them? Clearly there was somebody waiting for them, since the news that they were missing went out so quickly, but why were they alone in the first place?
