Previous chapters have mapped patterns of consumption in unique ways: Moraga’s protagonist put her family “on the map” while Steinbeck charted his anxieties about impending war and industrialized agriculture onto the seascape and intertidal zones. 1 This chapter offers a different type of mapping and grid and more directly tackles the connection between race and environmental injustice. Alex Rivera’s science fiction film, Sleep Dealer (2008a), and Karen Tei Yamashita’s novel, Tropic of Orange (1997), not only investigate what environmental justice might look like, but they also indicate a sea change in their commitment to magical realism and science fiction as tools to help us reimagine nature and its relationship to culture. 2
