"Hold on tight, author Daniel Chacón's Kafka in a Skirt takes you on a witty rollercoaster ride through Chicano life and beyond the wall."--Alfredo Corchado

"No Chicano/Latino literature collection is complete without the works of Daniel Chacón, who, with his unique humor and insight, invites us to see the world in a fresh and surprising way."--Reyna Grande

"Daniel Chacón's collection of stories challenges convention and resolution, offering us thought-provoking insights into our current (and oftentimes surreal) political climate. Kafka in a Skirt breaks new ground in the art of social commentary that highlights the strangeness of our human condition and the follies of the skewed perceptions we maintain of ourselves, our neighbors, and the troubled world we live in."--Rigoberto González

"'Kafka in a Skirt' is a literary experience that you will not soon forget. It has the power to change how you think about literature, life and relationships. And it will likely leave you with a desire to experience more of the universe through the mystical glow of Chacón's imagination."--El Paso, Inc.
