  1. Thank you for the link to the review of the new Urrea novel (which I did not know had been published). Urrea's earlier effort, THE HUMMINGBIRD'S DAUGHTER, was superb, and I think I will soon "dust off" my review of that intriguing novel and post it in a few days on my blog. I remember "chatting" via email with Urrea when THE HUMMINGBIRD'S DAUGHTER was published, and I recall that he was a gracious and fascinating fellow. I look forward to reading his latest.
