Staff Reviews


It is hard to believe that Luis Alberto Urrea was able to pack so much into 300-odd pages. Taking place over the course of just one weekend, ranging from the mundane to the sublime and the salacious, through all the highs and lows of a family across generations and spanning two countries, this is a tale of archetypes and individuals, a sweet and moving story.

— Sara, Atlanta

When Big Angel De La Cruz, the revered patriarch of a large Mexican family based in San Diego, is diagnosed with advanced cancer and given just weeks to live, he envisions his upcoming birthday party as an opportunity to bring his family together for one last goodbye. Luis Alberto Urrea’s beautiful, funny, and stirring portrait of the De La Cruz family’s gathering, with all their complex intricacies and woven histories, is a celebration of love, life, and family that dazzles and warms with its always present tenderness and humor.

— Ryan, Chicago ORD
