"In Amanda Ruiz, Yxta Maya Murray has created a character that is fresh and sassy and unlike any I've encountered in recent fiction. Through inventive and stylized prose rife with wit and intelligence, we witness her triumphs and heartbreaks just as Amanda is on the verge of a major creative breakthrough while her personal life begins to unravel. What results is a portrait of an artist whose tenacity and passion fill the pages of this ebullient novel, penned by a gifted writer whose imagination knows no limits." --Alex Espinoza, author of Cruising: An Intimate History of a Radical Pastime
