Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eryk Hanut captures the abandon with which Mexicans and Americans alike worship the Goddess of the Americas, with writing that evokes the heat rising from the pavements of Mexico City and the dust in the surrounding countryside where Mary appeared centuries ago. He brings the reader deep inside the occult religiosity of Mexican culture, which he conjures with recipes and witchcraft spells; character portraits that could be lifted from a Quentin Tarantino film; and a laser-sharp eye for human detail.

This record of the oddest of pilgrimages is an unforgettable depiction of religious devotion that accompanies the Virgin Mary in our time.
