    One thought on “The Music of Jimmy Ojotriste”

    1. Lovely novel about young mariachis finding their place in the world, soaked in a vibrant sense of place and time. Somehow captures that feeling of being twenty and seeing the world spread before you in a way I've rarely seen portrayed well.

Anyone interested in flamenco, mariachi, and hispanic culture will be immersed. I learned of the book through "las comadres" a latino lit reading group at our bookstore.
