"Pineda lays bare his struggles with family duty and identity in this literary standout."--Julie Kane, Library Journal -- (1/1/2011 12:00:00 AM)
Sleep in Me is essentially pure rendered memory, a book that can be taken down from the shelf and opened to any chapter, any moment however random and fleeting, and can make us feel the grand weight of tragedy, and the victory when we fight it.--Noah Renn, Virginian-Pilot -- (1/1/2011 12:00:00 AM)
"[Pineda's] muted, lyrical messages, to be savored at length, remind us of the value of listening deeply, to ourselves and others."--Gina Webb, Atlanta Journal-Constitution-- (1/1/2011 12:00:00 AM)
"Pineda has built his reputation as a poet, but he expands his literary territory with this powerful portrait of love and loyalty between siblings." --Rigoberto González, Critical Mass-- (1/1/2011 12:00:00 AM)
"A powerful survey of the impact of tragedy on a young boy's coming of age in this outstanding, vivid family memoir." --Diane C. Donovan, California Bookwatch-- (1/1/2011 12:00:00 AM)
"In this memoir Pineda explores the difference between self and sufferer--whether that sufferer is his sister or a wrestler he's pinned or a fish or himself--and sometimes, most beautifully and wrenchingly, they merge."--Disability Studies Quarterly -- (9/27/2011 12:00:00 AM)
