Reviews

Most writers are afraid of tackling these issues head on; Murray should be commended for not backing away and urging the reader to look with her.
Maceo Montoya, author of The Scoundrel and the Optimist

Murray’s style is, by turns, sarcastic, witty, sobering, didactic, poignant, informative—and full of corazón. I believe it is a significant contribution.
Patricia Santana, author of Motorcycle Ride on the Sea of Tranquility
