In addition to the previous great suggestions posted above, I liked these:
The Reader’s Companion to Mexico, Alan Ryan, editor - a collection of essays on Mexico by such well known authors as Katherine Anne Porter, Graham Greene, Witter Brynner, D.H. Lawrence, John Steinbeck, and Langston Hughes
Journalist Sam Quinones' two books
True Tales from Another Mexico - wonderful nuggets on Mexican life, such as what's (or this case, who) is behind all those Michoacan ice cream places
Antonio's Gun And Delfino's Dream: Truer Tales of Mexican Migration
I liked both books, but the first one slightly better.
