An auspicious, if slight, debut. Torres is extremely talented -- he writes with vigor and passion -- but the novel feels a bit premature, the material not sufficiently processed, the plot not fully developed. A professional literary community so eager to tout a new talent that it overpraises an underdone work does that talent a disservice. I hope he gets the chance to do great work down the line and look forward to reading him again.
