Salsa and Chips
In Salsa and Chips, Daniel Reveles welcomes us to Tecate, the enchanting dusty border town where no one is in a hurry and Time's winged chariot has broken down on Avenida Juarez. Wander through the plaza. Listen to the sweet madrigals of the taco man, the flower girl, and the fortune-telling canary. See the human flame-thrower and watch the bug-eater pop a spider in his mouth for a quarter.
In these luminous novelas, Daniel Reveles serves up the vast banquet of life. Peppered with magical realism and cultural nuance, triumph and despair, passion and spice, each story is a delectable meal for the heart and soul.
Meet El Flako, a hopeless bungler and his exasperated compadres; Father Ruben, who serves both God and his prodigious appetite with equal devotion; Dona Lala, the fantastic witch offering custom-brewed spells and incantations; and Treenie Contreras, a slippery scoundrel who will walk on water for a fee.
Come and pay a visit to Tecate, where the air is like wine, the smiles are free, and day-to-day miracles have the power to change destiny.
