Praise

“María Amparo Escandón es atrevida. ¿Quién se atreve a escribir sobre el clima en Los Ángeles? A diferencia del cliché del clima cálido y benigno que tan fácilmente se puede ignorar, la complicada riqueza que conforma la familia Alvarado se aprecia desde el primer párrafo.”—Laura Esquivel, autora de Como agua para chocolate.
 
“A phenomenal story about the Mexican-American experience in L.A: fun, quirky, heartwrenching, very human and full of soul. Read it and realize how much we all share (beyond the weather). María Amparo Escandón is a superb and unique observer.” —Jorge Ramos, award-winning journalist and author of No Borders
 
“Take it from María Amparo Escandón —it’s not always 72 and sunny in Los Angeles. Known for her sly humor, she brings us a surprising story about family life in one of America’s most complex cities.”—Reyna Grande, author of Across A Hundred Mountains “There is no other voice as quick-witted and sharp as María Amparo Escandón’s. In L.A. Weather she displays yet again her talent for creating engaging characters who leap off the page and linger like old friends or cherished relatives. As the Alvarados face shifts of tectonic proportions, Escandón confronts how families test our understanding of not just ourselves, but of the very world around us.” —Alex Espinoza, author of Cruising: An Intimate History of a Radical Pastime and Still Water Saints
