Happy to see my book reviewed and featured at Latino Book Review site. https://www.latinobookreview.com/latino-book-review–john-paul-jaramillo—little-mocos.html
Little Mocos–a novel in stories: “Jaramillo’s (The House of Order, 2011) second novel in stories builds on his debut collection, and fans of that work will likely find much to enjoy here. His writing is crisp, concise, and realistic, with a gimlet eye for the details of his characters’ grim existences.” –Kirkus Reviews https://www.kirkusreviews.com/…/john-paul-jar…/little-mocos/
Grateful for the thoughtful review at Indiereader.com: “…the book is filled with beautiful moments, like shards of broken stained-glass window lying in the dirt. This book will open your eyes to a new way of life and will leave you with haunting images not soon forgotten. A worthy read.” –IndieReader.com
Happy to see The House of Order featured on the cover of the August Sacramento Book Review!
