Format: Paperback
Recommend it. This book contains many stories about living in the never-boring country of Mexico. It is often difficult for foreigners to understand another culture especially when excessive media coverage promotes a stereotypical or maligning view of it. The short stories included in this anthology provide an insight into real life experiences in this magical country of opposites which has stubbornly held on to its cultural heritage and traditions. They are thoughtful, sad, happy and downright hilarious.

Format: Paperback
This collection of page-turning fiction, non-fiction, and poetry is utterly delicious: just excellent. I have it bedside and have already re-read stories that invite us back and back, some mysterious, some funny, some recounting startling history and all: vivid.
This is rich, crafted work: from writers noted and new, each piece honed and seasoned, and a sheer pleasure for any reader.
Anthologies are a hard genre: to select and arrange diverse pieces of writing from assorted writers into a meaningful - beautiful- whole is a big task! And rare, in my opinion. And I own and read many. This one is a resounding success: kudos to the editors and staff!
The various pieces weave in and around themes of magical Mexico..and then --- move into distant territories for readerly refreshment. The pace works: the content stays inviting.
And, in addition, the editors explain that the sales of this book benefit a local Scholarship fund; we get a great read, a well-made book,and a young Mexican student gets an extraordinary opportunity for higher education: it doesn't get much better!

Format: Paperback
There is nothing like the satisfaction of reading beautifully crafted writing. And this anthology of poets, fiction, and nonfiction writers is an entirely satisfying collection that will appeal to a wide spectrum of reading tastes. Some of the entries are as short, delicious appetizers -- others are exquisite main dishes that go deep into imaginative fiction or personal history. Sensitively edited and assembled. All in all, a volume to savor.

Congratulations, Eva Hunter and staff, for this stellar accomplishment.

Joseph Dispenza is the author of Older Man Younger Man: A Love Story and other books.
