Although I loved Chacón's first novel, "And the Shadows Took Him," I am sorry that I can't say the same thing about this book. I found it tedious and boring to read the 13 short stories in the collection. I asked a couple of other people to read the book, one of the individuals is a Chicano Studies professor, and none of them liked the book either.

Dark, sweet, and mixed matched chicano lives. I loved every story. A very unexpected journey through the eyes of a chicano writer.

I love these stories. Each one is unique and compelling. I'm certainly intrigued to read more by Mr. Chacón.

I read three short stories from this collection: "The Biggest City in the World," "Aztlán, Oregon," and "Too White."
