What People are Saying About This
Achy Obejas is an impeccable writer with a special gift for decoding interpersonal tensions and feelings. In these deceptively measured stories, the lives of lesbians and gay men acquires a meaning that transcends issues of sexual identity. In her hands, the world resonantes with an indelible wholeness. A fierce and significant new voice.
Achy Obejas' stories pull you in: the ushakable images, the poetry, the living truth of her lived-in voice. And they push you out: more aware, maybe; sense is fraught, perhaps; but, if anything, more adjoined to the complexities of and depths of women, interaction, and love.
A writer of gutsy humor and heart.
An exciting collection -- eye-opening and insightful...

This was the first time I read any work by Achy Obejas, and everytime I finished one of her short stories I turned to the back of the book where he picture sits, and stared at it through a different lens than when I first started reading the book. It was a short and concise piece, but she kept it real all the way!!
