    I just finished the latest edition of House of Houses. I read it for MultiCultural Revies (great publication if you don't know it). I submitted my book review yesterday.This is a touching family memoir; lots of magical realism. It is the sort of book that can make you laugh and can make you teary eyed.Latin American Lit teachers and American History teachers could include it in assigned to make the history more lively!

    I'm biased, but this was a superb. Not your usual family memoir.
