Ms. Escandon takes us on a madcap ride, driven by a Latina Scheherazade in a Mexicali womens's prison. Eccentric prisoners, gossiping truckers and a father and daughter on the lam are just some of the elements Escandon uses to create this jewel. A FUN READ!!

The memories of a guilt-ridden daughter of a neurotically fearful father as told to a roomful of illiterate prisoner's in a Mexican prison - it sounds depressing but is an imaginative, funny, delightful narrative. A road trip filled with charming characters and memorable images.

I loved this book. Maria writes with typical Mexican Humor-death and humor all in the same breath. She writes with warmth, gentleness but as a strong woman who meets lifes challenges with grace, wisdom and lots of humor. If you have not read her other book, Esperanza's Box of Saints - check it out too. She writes about her life journey, spriritual journey and Gonzalez and Daughter is reminiscent of Scherezades Tales. Check it out.
