Review of “This is Not Miami”

My review of Fernanda Melchor’s fabulous collection of nonfiction “This Is Not Miami,” has appeared over at Literal Magazine. Here’s a sample from the piece:

The best stories seduce. They draw you in and make you fall for them, become infatuated with them, and you lose focus on the rest of the world and only want to know what is going to happen next, what the character will say or do, how the story will end. You stay up late. Neglect your family, your work, your other hobbies. You breathe only at the periods.

Fernanda Melchor is no stranger to such seduction. 

This one of the best books I’ve reviewed recently, and I highly recommend you check it out.
