PEN-Faulkner Award-winning author T. Coraghessan Boyle weaves together the stories of two families in Southern California: one affluent, the other destitute. As Boyle creates a counterpoint of personal needs, civic responsibility, and social custom, each family's quest for the American Dream fuels deep fear and anger that ultimately lead to a perilous confrontation.

    " "I found much of the prose beautifully written but most of the story tedious and depressing. An important subject, Mexican illegals trying to make a better life, but the characters were, to me, mostly inlikeable, with the exception of America. It does raise questions and provoke thoought." "

    " nothing new on the stereotyped characters and the ending you kind of see it coming. "

    " Absolutely riveting!! Great characters; it shows LA from a rich family's point of view vs. a poor immigrant family & their run-ins w/each other. A real eye-opener. "
