Childlike imagination and gritty gang-filled reality follow and pass each other like speeding cars on a highway in this debut collection of short stories. With a voice that replicate both the deluded machismo of gangsters and the quiet sensitivity of despairing poets considering the desperation of urban poverty, Galaviz-Budzisewski’s stories explore friendship, family, hope, and desperation in vibrant and intoxicating prose. Chicago now has its own Junot Diaz.
