Reviews
"A meditation on how language defines not just the words we use but the places we come from." --The New York Times Book Review

"Stavans's Mexico . . . is a treacherous but vivid world seen through the eyes of a gifted child; his subsequent encounter with America makes the New World seem-astonishingly-new." James Atlas, author of Bellow: A Biography
