Before the End, After the Beginning by Dagoberto Gilb.. Sumptuous collection, especially the grandscapes of the Southwest you’ll encounter here. Some lonely hunters, for sure. Deeply personal.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Gilb's voice has an authenticity that's unimpeachable."

San Antonio Express News

"Demonstrates that the author has more power than ever in addressing the conditions and contradictions of being split across cultures, and reminds us that every American, native or immigrant, is the product of a society that must learn to share or risk losing its founding graces."
