Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A winning novel…It’s plain to see how love, borders, death-and most of all, willful ignorance-are part of everyday reawakenings. With Casares’ blessing, you can laugh at them all.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Knowing, touching and true.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Oscar Casares’ Amigoland, his first novel and a follow-up to his much-acclaimed book of short stories, Brownsville, is a liberating journey full of warmth and color….The group’s impromptu trip to Mexico feels like a refreshing, rejuvenating trip for the reader as well as the characters. And the ending? Bittersweet, unexpected and undeniably precious. All told, Amigoland is full of new friends and makes for perfect summer reading.” Bookpage
