bookshelves: adult-fiction, diverse-characters, multicultural
Read in January, 2010

I think it was that aspect of tragic/lost love stories mixed with magical realism that made me like this (the writing reminded me of "The History of Love" by Nicole Krauss and one of my favorite books ever, "Forever" by Pete Hamill). Plus it helped that I got the Spanglish references and the uber-geeky pop culture references (Akira anyone!?!?).
