The tea is now spiked as this #litsypartyofone has turned into the pregame for two back-to-back bookless, people-infested parties this introvert has to attend 😱

People were kind to me during this time, a strange, pitying kindness. I thought they knew how angry I was, knew there was no hope left for me. I too would be kind, I thought, if I met myself on the road.

Night at the Fiestas follows hardscrabble lives haunted by loss and enlivened by dreams of a better future. Quade‘s writing is lushly detailed, her characters lovingly drawn, and her stories achieve astonishing emotional power. By turns tragic and very funny, this is a terrific debut. —Rico
