In a work that readers have compared to the magic-realism of Marquez and Isabel Allende, Arturo Hernandez-Sametier’s third book moves away from gang life for a beautiful story of fate and first love among a young group of Mexican street musicians.


Jimmy Ojotriste is an orphaned street guitarist with a glass eye created by an aging Tijuana artist. The eye is beautiful, sad and bewitched. His trio has made a living on the streets of the East Los Angeles since childhood.

But as they come to grips with a death that will end their trio, three women, a glass-eye and a flamenco gypsy lead them on a lush, lyrical quest from Los Angeles to Andalusia.
