A huge thank you to PBS NewsHour's Now Read This for recommending this wonderful book. Urrea's delightful prose is as lyrical as a Mariachi serenade and as poetic as a Shakespeare sonnet. The cast of characters is delightful, deep, and fully-fleshed out as humans always are.

The structure and flow reminded me of a John Irving novel with stories within stories all intertwining to create a tapestry of rich and lush textures and colors. A sprinkling of current events and politics adds to the book's depth.

I highly recommend this one.
