Review

"There is so much to discover in this book. Turn off the computer and phone. Open the closet that is this book. Poke around. Hear these stories. They will reward you." -- Lisa D. Chavez "This book is a gem. I am blown away by it. Its essays are original--incredibly, refreshingly original. It is not only a personal journey, it is also a historically significant journey for writers, for Chicanas/os, women, men, and all people interested in the power of what connects us all as humans." -- Emmy Perez "There is so much to discover in this book.
