Carmen Boullosa is one of Mexico's most acclaimed young writers, and Leaving Tabasco tells of the coming-of-age of Delmira Ulloa, raised in an all-female home in Agustini, in the Mexican province of Tabasco. The Washington Post Book World wrote, We happily share with [Delmira] ... her life, including the infinitely charming town she inhabits [and] her grandmother's fantastic imagination. In Agustini it is t unusual to see your grandmother float above the bed when she sleeps, or to purchase torrential rains at a traveling fair, or to watch your family's elderly serving woman develop stigmata, then disappear completely, to be canized as a local saint. As Delmira becomes a woman she will search for her missing father, and will make a choice that will force her to leave home forever. Brimming with the spirit of its irrepressible heroine, Leaving Tabasco is a story of great charm and depth that will remain in its readers' hearts for a long time. Carmen Boullosa ... immerses us once again in her wickedly funny and imaginative world. -- Dolores Prida, Latina To flee Agustini is to leave t just a town but the viscerally primal dreamscape it represents. -- Sandra Tsing Loh, The New York Times Book Review A vibrant coming-of-age tale ... Boullosa [is] a master.... Each chapter is an adventure. -- Monica L. Williams, The Boston Globe
