Full of the magic, mystery, and full-bodied characters readers have come to expect of the best South American fiction, The Disappearance of Irene Dos Santos is as luscious and rich as the culture it reflects, and will likely find a following among fans of Junot Diaz, Julia Alvarez, and Christina Garcia. (Fall 2009 Selection)
