NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST * Latinas of Indigenous descent living in the American West take center stage in this haunting debut story collection--a powerful meditation on friendship, mothers and daughters, and the deep-rooted truths of our homelands.  "Here are stories that blaze like wildfires, with characters who made me laugh and broke my heart."--Sandra Cisneros FINALST FOR THE STORY PRIZE * FINALIST FOR THE PEN/ROBERT W. BINGHAM PRIZE FOR DEBUT SHORT STORY COLLECTION Kali Fajardo-Anstine's magnetic story collection breathes life into her Latina characters of indigenous ancestry and the land they inhabit in the American West. Against the remarkable backdrop of Denver, Colorado--a place that is as fierce as it is exquisite--these women navigate the land the way they navigate their lives: with caution, grace, and quiet force. In "Sugar Babies," ancestry and heritage are hidden inside the earth but tend to rise during land disputes. "Any Further West" follows a sex worker and her daughter as they leave their ancestral home in southern Colorado only to find a foreign and hostile land in California. In "Tomi," a woman leaves prison and finds herself in a gentrified city that is a shadow of the one she remembers from her childhood. And in the title story, "Sabrina & Corina," a Denver family falls into a cycle of violence against women, coming together only through ritual. Sabrina & Corina is a moving narrative of unrelenting feminine power and an exploration of the universal experiences of abandonment, heritage, and an eternal sense of home. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Public Library * Kirkus Reviews Library Journal  "Sabrina & Corina isn't just good, it's masterful storytelling. Fajardo-Anstine is a fearless writer: her women are strong and scarred witnesses of the violations of their homelands, their culture, their bodies; her plots turn and surprise, unerring and organic in their comprehensiveness; her characters break your heart, but you keep on going because you know you are in the hands of a master. Her stories move through the heart of darkness and illuminate it with the soul of truth."--Julia Alvarez, author of How the García Girls Lost Their Accents "[A] powerhouse debut . . . stylistically superb, with crisp dialogue and unforgettable characters, Sabrina & Corina introduces an impressive new talent to American letters."--Rigoberto González, NBC News… (mais)

After living here nearly a year and a half, I've struggled to find soul in Colorado. This may be the first time I've felt it.

Believe the hype--this is a STELLAR book. ( )

This is a rich and interesting collection of short stories about Latinx-Native American families with strong ties to the Denver area. Fajardo-Anstine is an engaging and vivid writer, and her characters leap off the pages. I'm definitely impatient for her next book. I count this a must-read. ( )

This is yet another exception to my avoidance of short story collections; thanks to Ted Chiang and others, the exceptions threaten to outnumber the rule.

These are vividly realistic stories about Latina women living in Denver and southern Colorado, dealing with racism and poverty, and accompanying issues like drug addiction. They're not really "downers"; there's hope and persistence and resistance. In one, Josie becomes a mother at 16, and may no longer be able to handle raising now 10 year old Sierra. In the title story, one cousin, Sabrina, is spectacularly beautiful and has high hopes, but the lack of opportunities drive her to drugs and promiscuity. Corina, plainer, tries to keep her cousin from completely going off the rails, while going to beauty school and trying to establish her own life. Other stories show the holes in our supposed social safety nets. In one, when a mother contracts breast cancer, there are no good options. Her husband's insurance doesn't cover worthwhile treatments, and he can't leave his job to help care for her. What they end up doing is a sad commentary on healthcare in this country.

This excellent collection is piercing, but never unhopeful. ( )

I knew little about this book when I started reading it. Since reading it, I have seen videos in which the author states her main purpose was to merely get a book out there that talked about people like her and her friends and family. Further, it seems it was marketed as primarily to tell more recent immigrants to Denver in Colorado about the not so distant Chicano culture in the Denver area and how certain neighborhoods have been changed. That's all well and good, but, as modest as these goals seem to me, the fact is there is more than ample evidence that this writer is more than just a little deserving of the book awards it's been in competition to receive. This is *really* solid writing. In doesn't suffer from any of the shortcomings I find so easily in many other fictional works, especially by newer authors. In some respects, it reminds me of a Latinx version of Wendell Berry's fictional Kentucky town of Port William, putting it at the top of the list of the most engaging fictional writing I have ever read to date. This book doesn't let the life lessons viewpoints shine through quite as clearly and as forcefully as Berry's, but...here's the thing: I don't predict she will eventually write the Great American Novel, but I do think she has the potential to do just that. If she finds a enough drive to assemble an epic about the life she grew up in and the lives she came in contact with, and the patience to link all of it together, she certainly has the writing chops to put it on paper with clarity and style. Very much looking forward to her next work. ( )

A very impressive collection of short stories. Some are much stronger than others, in fact the collection's high point is the first story "Sugar Babies." The writer has a tendency to construct each segment with mirroring characters. It is a technique that she seems to have a mastery over, but it will be really interesting to see if she will build a more independent character over the course of a novel. I'd love to hear more from the narrator of "Sugar Babies." Looking forward to the writer's next publication. ( )
