"Funny, sexy, smart, tender, and above all nimble, this book’s laughter echoes in the twentieth century’s long and persistent shadow."
~Joyelle McSweeney, author of The Red Bird and Professor at University of Notre Dame
"This novel treats revolution, love, betrayal and magic with equal adeptness and intelligence. In a world that is at once ours and foreign Rosales makes characters that will be remembered when the novel is done. This is a truly fine piece of work."
~ Percival Everett, author of Erasure and Winner of the Academy Award in Literature from The Academy of Arts and Letters.
