Reviews

"A book of extraordinary scope and extraordinary power." --Los Angeles Times

"Tobar exhibits a seismographic sensitivity to the tensions along the fault lines of his cultural terrain....His illuminations become our recognitions." --The New York Times Book Review

"Both timely and timeless...Tobar continually creates moments of uncommon magic." --Elle

"Tobar looks at Los Angeles like Tom Wolfe took on New York in The Bonfire of the Vanities. Race, class, crime, immigration, marriage trouble, and tabloid-ready news stories--it's all here." --New York Post

"Each moment surprises....Darkly hilarious and moving." --The Washington Post

"That Tobar is so evenhanded, so compassionate, so downright smart, should place The Barbarian Nurseries on everyone's must-read list." --The Seattle Times
