Summary
Poet Mora's house is filled with her ancestors like great-grandmother Tomasa who leaves fruit behind her radio for the announcer she loves, and aunt Chole who, although blind, is the only one who sees the Virgin Mary when she appears in the garden. Drawing on magic realism, Mora channels her memoir through these ancestors, transforming the struggles of a single Mexican-American family with the magic and healing of ritual, language, stories, and recipes.
