Reviews

"Fierce and essential stories . . . Feminine agency, legacy and kinship . . . govern the hearts of every character in this book."-The New York Times

"A terrific collection of stories-fiercely and beautifully made."-Joy Williams

"Here are stories that blaze like wildfires, with characters who made me laugh and broke my heart, believable in everything they said and did. How tragic that American letters hasn't met these women of the West before, women who were here before America was America. And how tragic that these working-class women haven't seen themselves in the pages of American lit before. Thank you for honoring their lives, Kali. I welcome them and you."-Sandra Cisneros

"In the eleven stories of Sabrina & Corina, Fajardo-Anstine writes a love letter to the Chicanas of her homeland-women as unbreakable as the mountains that run through Colorado and as resilient as the arid deserts that surround it. . . . In her fierce, bold stories, these women-and she-are seen, and heard, and made known; the collection is both a product of pain and a celebration of survival. . . . Like the woman on Sabrina & Corina's cover, the hearts of these characters are exposed but intact. Fajardo-Anstine's heart is there on the page, too, beating with the blood of her ancestors."-Bustle

"
Sabrina & Corina
summons a world we hardly recognize, but should. . . . Fajardo-Anstine can make a story smell of sickness. She can make legend of malediction. Conjuring the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and unfurling the Denver skyline, there is no limit to what Fajardo-Anstine can manifest on paper and, subsequently, in our dreams. Yet, what is most admirable is the courage of her hand. She's unafraid to delve into areas of race, feminism, queerness, and class. She interrogates whiteness, and its associations like passing and colorism, prodding unapologetically."-Electric Literature

"[A] beautiful collection." -HelloGiggles

"[An] engrossing collection of tales . . . Stories that bravely reinvent the Wild West narrative by lifting up Latinx women and portraying callused hand cowboys not as heroes, but as villains and perpetrators of violence."-Latino Book Review

"You will clutch your heart reading Kali Fajardo-Anstine's short story collection. Her stories are that heartbreaking, each one like a gift from a small child, offered with earnest, luminous eyes, innocence itself, impossible to reject. . . . Go find yourself a copy of this thrilling, touching, beautiful book."-New York Journal of Books

"In [
Sabrina & Corina
] we find a different narrative of the West. These are women who inhabit a space between the Indigenous and the Latinx; they are fierce [and] powerful in their own way."-Brooklyn Rail

"Kali Fajardo-Anstine writes about hard truths in women's lives so knowingly, and with such a deft touch, I felt hyper-alert, as well as implicated and imperiled. The book is about belief, coping, yearning, and proceeding in spite of adversity (that is, the times we stay alive). The final act of the first story tells us everything we need to know about what territory we'll be entering: In these achingly convincing stories, the writer is writing delicately, symbolically, about mortality itself."-Ann Beattie
