About the Book
“The people in this fictional town are weird, funny, beautiful, and they do crazy things. They remind me of my own family, and I can’t help but to love them. Alberto Ríos is a great storyteller.”—Daniel Chacón, author of Kafka in a Skirt
“Ríos takes us to a home we’ve never been properly introduced to until now. Community activates through the sum of its parts, and though not always predictable as the stars, each of Ríos’s characters’ contributions is as necessary as the sun.”—Bryan Allen Fierro, author of Dodger Blue Will Fill Your Soul
