77) So Far From God

Anna Castillo was the first Latino author that made me want to be that fun, and amazingly gifted. She is the bar that I one day hope to match or exceed, and as an English major whose read Joyce, Proust, Twain ect ect it was a relief to find something that spoke to me.
On a side note I was lucky to be given a copy of The Mixquiahuala Letters, another novel of hers that can be read differently depending on your personality. That is a book that women lend out from friend to friend.

“But what had really happened, unfortunately, as ideal as it started out to be, was not that they had succeeded in becoming one, but that they had become neither.” 
― Ana Castillo, So Far from God
