Praise For In Search of Snow…
"Urrea wrests strange, beautiful poetry out of the mean, lean desert terrain." Publishers Weekly"Urrea is one of the hottest Chicano writers around." The Nation"I laughed so hard at one scene in this book that I pulled a muscle in my chest, which makes In Search of Snow a literal rib-splitter." The Albuquerque Journal"Urrea is, in three words, One Terrific Writer. Without getting in the way of the story, his hypnotic, ethereal passages paint a magnificent background. More than once, you'll find yourself rereading a paragraph, not for clarification or out of literary curiosity about how he pulled it off, but simply because it's so beautifully done."
