Meet the residents of San Francisco's Mission District--Latinos determined to carve off a slice of the American Dream. For Ruy Lopez, a humble gardener, that means have the love affair of his life with an elusive Anglo beauty. For Manny Caballos, a beer and corn-husk distributor, it means fulfilling his lifelong goal of seeing a charismatic Mexican-American--a Latino JFK--elected to high office...and for Delfina Varela, an aging, luckless widow who has repented for sins she never committed every day of her life, it means owning a car--even if it's just a used Chevy, and even if she has to sell her soul to the Devil to get it.

With a keen eye for the realities and the absurdities of life, Louie Garcia Robinson presents an uproarious portrait of a close-knit Mexican-American community. No one will be able to resist this whimsical comic novel by a marvelous new talent.
