Praise For From This Wicked Patch of Dust…
One reads From This Wicked patch of Dust and can only pause for a moment to say, Yes.’ Sergio Troncoso writes with inevitable grace and mounting power. Family, in all its baffling wonder, comes alive on these pages.” Luis Urrea, author of The Hummingbird’s Daughter
"Troncoso is clearly adept at his craft, telling a story filled with rich language and the realities of family life. With its skillful pairing of conflict over religious and familial obligations with the backdrop of a Mexican-American family’s love for one another, Troncoso’s novel is an engaging literary achievement." —Kirkus Reviews
