About the Novel
"Inside the suitcase her abuela brought with her from Mexico as a young bride, Palma Piedras discovers her own past in a series of letters written when she was only a child. Now she is a university graduate, a bisexual woman who looks toward the future but who is still caught up in the ambiguities of her own past. In this at times gritty yet always entertaining novel, Ana Castillo paints a captivating portrait that defies odds, questions stereotypes and always maintains a sense of humor born from her ear for language and eye for extraordinary detail." - Elena Poniatowska
