Each story concerns an encounter -- sometimes hilarious, often tragic, frequently ambivalent, inevitably poignant -- that in its own dramatic way epitomizes some striking contrast along the invisible, reflective, dangerous frontier that divides the North American world.Yet beyond the emblematic power of Fuentess fiction to make us think about the political and cultural themes defining that world, there is the sheer human diversity of life on the crystal frontier: these extraordinary stories pulse with vivid experience -- of love in its many guises, of loneliness, of youth and old age, of heartbreak and redemption.

Like many of the greatest Spanish-language novels, this exuberant fiction contains and alludes to journalism, politics, economics, famous tall tales, and picaresque adventures, all united by the vitality, variety, and narrative force that Fuentes always gives his work (La Jornada).
