Reviews

"Fierce and finely crafted, Candelaria's Empire is a dazzling debut."--El Paso Times

"Empire is a sensuous and lucid meditation on lineage, from the haunting and mythic narratives of her ancestry to her tautly drawn memories of growing up in California. It is a book of tender and deeply imagined songs. I cannot recommend it enough."--Cathy Park Hong, author of Translating Mo'um
