Reviews

"Perfectly crafted--The stories--linger in the mind the way intense light lingers in the retina." --Los Angeles Times

"An artist in language -- a first-rate American writer. Lopez goes straight to the heart of the peculiar sensations, both physical and mental, known to all who have allowed themselves open communion with the land." - Edward Abbey

"Flawless--. As painstakingly crafted and as resonant as a good classical guitar." - The New York Times Book Review

"Richly allusive, moving, compassionate." - The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Lopez succeeds in awakening our fleeting yearnings and hidden feelings. This book should be savored for the force of its imagery and the magic of its prose." - Houston Chronicle
