"Set in the early 1960s, the first half of the book is a bitter-comic story of banking, amorous and political lives of various citizens of Klail City told in epistolary form by one Jehu Malacara ... The rest of the work is a series of character sketches cum fictional interviews touching on the life and fate of Jehu. (...) Although his (Hinojosa's) sharp eye and accurate ear capture a place, its people and a time in a masterly way, his work goes far beyond regionalism. He is a writer for all readers, and Dear Rafe is a delight in any league".
