Praise for THE SON OF GOOD FORTUNE

 

“Lysley Tenorio's THE SON OF GOOD FORTUNE is flat-out brilliant, and what makes it so wondrous is how Tenorio controls the complexity of the narrative. How can a book be filled with so much humor, such a light touch, and yet still touch that weird place in our heart that can break us apart? Excel and his mother, Maxima, are characters you won't forget, and the world in which they exist, stuck between belonging and not belonging, does not deserve them.”
 

--Kevin Wilson, author of Nothing To See Here
