Reviews

"The novel's structure is elegant and seemingly simple--chapters arranged chronologically, snippets of life, at times fully dramatized in vivid scenes, at others condensed in efficient summary. . . . Effortlessly, with elegance of style, Troncoso weaves a tapestry of lives, of human beings who by the end of the book feel not just real, not just intimately close, but undeniable, inescapable, a part of ourselves."--Judges' Comments, PEN Texas Award for Fiction

"One reads From This Wicked patch of Dust and can only pause for a moment to say, 'Yes.' Sergio Troncoso writes with inevitable grace and mounting power. Family, in all its baffling wonder, comes alive on these pages."--Luis Urrea, author of The Hummingbird's Daughter
