Check out Michael Jaime-Becerra's new novel! This title will be released on February 16, 2010.
Michael's last collection of short stories sold out in three days at Squaw last summer.
"If you think southern California is a landscape you already know, think again, and then read Michael Jaime-Becerra. His stories are the ones people need to know, and his craftsmanship is impeccable."
-- Susan Straight, author of The Gettin Place and I've Been in Sorrow's Kitchen and Licked Out All the Pots
