Reviews

"I've known and admired Maria for many years. She is truly an outstanding journalist. I loved reading Once I Was You: A Memoir of Love and Hate in a Torn America. It was so personal and moving, and told a very timely and critically important story for all Americans. I learned a lot about Maria, but more importantly, I learned a lot about what's going on in so many parts of our country. Thanks, Maria, for writing this powerful book."

"In these times of love and hate, Maria Hinojosa's astonishing story is medicine, healing, illumination. She swallows fear as if she were a circus performer swallowing fire. She encourages, inspires, and challenges us to find our own courage. Once I Was You is a dazzling gift she has bestowed upon us and America."

-- "Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street"
