Praise

“A transporting story of the importance of family history told in a luminescent style.”Good Housekeeping

“An intimate and intensely moving story. Fajardo-Anstine’s lyrical, unpretentious prose renders the generations of women of this story in all of their complexity, offering a nuanced perspective on how the past can inform the future . . . Fajardo-Anstine . . . is a formidable, necessary voice in fiction.”—Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Malibu Rising

“This novel is indelible, and shines its big light on the Lopez family so brightly that I could draw a map of their breath. . . . An absolutely glorious novel.”—Emma Straub, author of All Adults Here

“Fajardo-Anstine brings to life in sensory-rich details . . . a lush, immersive historical novel.”Kirkus Reviews

“An entrancing book about the stories we carry, the ones we need to keep telling. Fajardo-Anstine has given us another stunning cast of characters to root for.”Lithub

“A novel with vast reach.”—Electric Lit

“Sometimes you just step into a book and let it wash over you, like you’re swimming under a big, sparkling night sky.”—Celeste Ng, author of Little Fires Everywhere and Everything I Never Told You

“An unparalleled generational saga . . . one of the most potent voices in contemporary Latino and Native American literature.”—BeLatina

“A classic legendary Latinx story and a punch that says [Fajardo-Anstine] can square up with any contemporary writer. Quite literally . . . she can do it all.”—Lupita Reads

“There are no other words to describe Fajardo-Anstine’s Woman of Light; a brilliant conflagration of a story that opens the eyes and inflames the heart.”—Craig Johnson, author of the Longmire series

“A cinematic, epic story. Kali Fajardo-Anstine brings her keen understanding of desire, vulnerability, and destiny to this gorgeous reclaiming of lost history.”—Mira Jacob, author of Good Talk

“Fajardo-Anstine has the power to accurately express the joy and sadness in a person’s life, their history, how the world comes into contact with us, and how we come into contact with the world. . . . Captivating.”—Mieko Kawakami, author of Breasts and Eggs

“A rare and wondrous kind of novel that assembles the universe from mere words, whose unforgettable characters haunt like long shadows in the southwestern light.”—Gary Shteyngart, author of Lake Success

“Impossible to put down . . . Fajardo-Anstine’s compelling writing paints a convincing portrait of a city in flux, haunted by white violence, and portrays a complex female friendship, a vivid love story (or three), and a story of family and memory in the American West.”Booklist
