Critical Praise

."A vivid, breathing cityscape teeming with raw beauty, danger, and magic.."

——Dodie Bellamy, San Francisco Chronicle

"Nobody's ever really given us such a revealing look at New York's Dominican population before...Cruz, in this determinedly real yet often magical novel, offers canny insights into family life.."

——Mark Rozzo, Los Angeles Times

"Tinted with the magical realism of Gabriel García Márquez, Cruz's first novel is that of man and woman, selective amnesia and persistent memories, redemption and survival."

——Katori Hall, The Boston Globe
