''Finally, a good collection of gay Latino fiction in English. These international stories run the gamut from bitchy divas to really bad boys; from South America to the South Bronx. Steamy, spicy, and anything but boring, this collection of stories that feel true features truly great writing, wonderful plotting, and characters you care about. The full range of human experience covered in these stories shows how real they are and how we all stand on common ground.'' --OutSmart
''Dozens of gay Latino writers from all over the United States came together for the publication of From Macho to Mariposa: New Gay Latino Fiction.
Though the stories may take many different forms through the voices of many people, they all center on those themes that are essential to the human experience like family, friends, happiness, loneliness, pain, neglect, sex, and love. The tales are woven together in a way that touches on the differences but more importantly highlights those similarities that create unshakable bonds. This is a must read not just for gay Latinos, but for anyone of the human persuasion.'' --Latina Magazine
