Advance praise for The Five Acts of Diego León
“An elegant, startling vision of a Mexican in America, The Five Acts of Diego León proclaims the ascendance of a unique new talent, Alex Espinoza—a Chicano in America certain to surpass the fame of his novel’s silent Hollywood hero. Espinoza takes our literature from a mute, black-and-white era to a national stage with full-spectrum color, in high-tech surround sound.”—Dagoberto Gilb, author of Before the End, After the Beginning
Praise for Alex Espinoza’s Still Water Saints
“[A] stunning debut . . . It feels like magic.”—Los Angeles
“Alex Espinoza’s Still Water Saints is a cycle of tales as perfect as the beads of a rosary. One alone is a little miracle; the whole together is capable of renewing one’s faith in new fiction.”—Sandra Cisneros
“Elegantly crafted . . . If magic is in short supply here among the new housing developments and the strip malls, faith in every incarnation is thriving.”—The Washington Post
“Enchanting . . . [Still Water Saints] does not ask us to suspend disbelief even while it bewitches. . . . It plunges you into a community that reminds us that all communities, no matter what their ethnic makeup, experience many of the same dilemmas and challenges.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“[Espinoza] treats us to a rich, episodic gem of human foible, need, greed, beauty, and weirdness. . . . His style is ominous, layered and clean—reminiscent of a Hieronymus Bosch painting. Still Water Saints is charming. . . . Its whimsy has teeth.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review
