Series of short stories about the residents of Mesquite, AZ, a poor, dusty little border town, this works like a hispanic soap opera of sorts. Love the intertwining of lives and the gamut of human experiences, some stories lingered in my mind, most had quieter endings. Characters include the young brothers Riquis, born with the misfortune of looking like his good-for-nothing father, and Flaco who is kinder and less angry and gets the girl who attracts the unwanted attentions of her teacher; Cookie the spy who wants to forget her past in Mexico; Delores who discovers she wants a steady man after being proudly independent for so long; Mono who finally finds love but must fight his sister for it.
