I'm glad that I read this now instead of earlier in my career because I would have thought that I had nothing to add to Dr. Habell-Pallan's analysis of El Vez. It turns out that I do have something to say, but I'm really glad that Habell-Pallan has said what she has said. It's an excellent book, both informative and enjoyable to read. Glad she does what she does - especially because it will help me make what I do better.
