Reviews
Mendez's strong narrative and distinct, picturesque writing are both reflected in the artistic aspirations of his protagonists: JD aspires to make movies when he returns from the air force, and his affinity for screenplays is as potent as Daniel's artistic interest in traditional Mexican and Southwestern aesthetics influences. [...They] are effectively presented in parallel as Mendez explores masculinity, mourning, and Mexican-American identity with emotional depth that readers will find moving and heartbreaking.--The Bulletin "October 2023"
Much of the novel is masterfully realized; its symbolic system is noteworthy, with images that accrue ever more refined meanings.
