“Sharply realized fiction located in a vibrant community.”
“Granados’ stories are…lively, profane, and sexually explicit. Her characters confront
painful and difficult situations awkwardly yet with deep emotion.”
“...a beautifully written work owing to its setting, characters, and interesting literary style, puro bicultural without half trying, and completely gratifying."
“Like her characters, Christine Granados is not afraid to step up and in. It doesn’t matter who, what man or woman, Chicano or Chicana, she’s fighting to win.”
―Dagoberto Gilb, author of Before the End, After the Beginning
“Kick-ass writing from a chingona from El Chuco―a real slice of America without the stereotypes and hype from the evening news. ¡Brava!”
―Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street
"Granados continues to be a groundbreaking storyteller from the borderlands."
Polished yet raw,
Fight Like a Man
is about intimate, intricate human
relationships in all their complex motivations and emotional nuance, and how we tend to prefer the devil we know.
