Publisher's Summary

Recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, critically acclaimed short-story writer Oscar Casares delivers a heartfelt and humorous first novel.

Stubborn brothers Don Fidencio and Don Celestino are getting old and have let a family argument divide them for too long. So with the help of his good-natured housekeeper, Don Celestino liberates his brother from a nursing home, and they hit the road to solve the mystery at the heart of their dispute.

Critic 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)
