Editorial Reviews

David Quanmen
"Flawless...as painstakengly crafted and as resonant as a good classical guitar." -- The New York Times Book Review
Lianne Mercer
"Lopez succeeds in awakening our fleeting yearings and hidden feelings. This book should be savoured for the force of its imagery and the magic of its prose." -- The Houston Chronicle
Richard Nicholls
"Reaffirms his unique place in contemporary literature...richly allusive, moving, compassionate, these stories celebrate the web of nature that holds the world together." -- The Philadelphia Enquirer
