March- So Far From God

Standard

CastilloThe story of Sofia and her daughters reads like a telenovela, with many aspects of tradition which conflict with a move toward modern life.  I can’t wait to discuss this book at our book club because there seems to be so much meaning in everything that Castillo writes about, the names, the nicknames, the traditions.

Here is  a link to a reading by Ms. Castillo. In it she also gives some thoughts about writing in New Mexico and the family she writes about. 30 minutes – Ana Castillo (audio)
