Bryan Allen Fierro is the real deal. This stunning collection is the harbinger of a bright-shining writing career beginning its run. Highly recommended.

Fierro's short fiction transcends the city of Los Angeles and will leave you thinking about society and its divides.
—New York Post
With great charge, Fierro writes the lives of those waiting for their genuine longings to be unearthed and brought to light. Whether funny or nervy or surprisingly affectionate, these stories hit pay dirt every time.
—Manuel Muñoz, author of The Faith Healer of Olive Avenue
Fierro displays the prowess of a master storyteller. A powerful and evocative debut.
—Don Rearden, author of The Raven's Gift
Bryan Fierro writes with startling insight and a gifted comic's instincts about love, family ties, desire, masculinity, poverty, and privilege. His voice is affecting and sincere, alternately elegiac and contemplative, edgy and ironic. These are powerful, memorable stories from a writer who I am certain has many more books to offer us.
—Christine Sneed, author of Portraits of a Few of the People I've Made Cry and The Virginity of Famous Men
Bryan Fierro's stories are breathtaking and essential. Dodger Blue Will Fill Your Soul

Fierro knows his characters intimately. . . . He brings each onstage—whatever their circumstances—with affection and humor.
