LOVED IT! Big Angel is dying but the heart of this book is the celebration of a life filled with love. Love of family, passionate love and love of life. This is my favorite of Urreas' books and I would highly recommend listening to the audio. He truly reads the life into these characters that he obviously deeply loves.
I just love this woman. Enriquez has a signature scent to her writing, one that conjured up images of bone shards and blood mingled with mud. This table-shaking tome offers up so much: Argentinian mysticism, the (literal) cult of family, political trauma, queer experiences and an attempt to escape the tugs of fate. An enriching and grisly read.
