Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A rancher wants his four sons to become priests they think differently. A mother relinquishes her career as a singer and wonders if it was worth it. Her daughter has given up on the world and lives through reality TV shows. A woman suffers her husband's sadism and remembers how their love began. The different stories in this novel are punctuated by choruses, some humorous, most of them tragic, that lend their voice to the voiceless: young beggars, raped daughters, orphans, dealers, and hard core gangs among others
