"Still Water Saints is charming, yet its charm is an uneasy one. Its whimsy has teeth. And that is, absolutely, a compliment." (Los Angeles Times
"As perfect as the beads of a rosary." (Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street)
"A kaleidoscopic portrait of a town....[Espinoza] demonstrates a deep understanding of his characters." (Kirkus Reviews)
why in the world would you have a narrator who doesn't read Spanish do this book. I couldn't understand half the things she said and I speak Spanish. it takes so much away from the book to ignore the language. what a loss.
