Publisher Comments:

Tome is a small, outwardly sleepy hamlet in central New Mexico. In Ana Castillo's hands, however, it stands wondrously revealed as a place teeming with life and with all manner of collisions: the past with the present, the real with the supernatural, the comic with the horrific, the Native American with the Latino and the Anglo, and the women with the men. With her talkative, intimate voice and stylistic narrative freedom, Castillo relates the story of two crowded decades in the life of a Chicano family.

"Engaging . . . the author tells an important story and she tells it with inventiveness and verve."--Washington Post Book World

Synopsis:

From the American Book Award-winning author of "The Mixquiahuala Letters" comes the story of a remarkable woman and her four daughters living in New Mexico--a novel shaped by influences as diverse as Mexican mythology, Catholicism, and today's headlines.
