What People are Saying About This
Holy Radishes! is a perfectly wonderful, magical book. It is by turns witty and wise, comic and tragic, in the clouds and down in the dirt. Even Dickens would be proud to have created such a cast of original and memorable characters. And not even Disney could have created a pig like the unforgettable Rigoletto.
(Jesse Lee Kercheval, author of Museum of Happiness, and Dogeater)
No one writes about the CubanAmerican experience with more voltage, more originality and imagination, than Roberto Fernández…
