That's what makes this book so masterful. Torres captures the isolation of a mother trying, and failing, to do what's right for her kids; the day after a rape by her husband, she drives the kids away and tells them: "We can go home, but we don't have to.
We don't ever have to go home again. We can leave him. We can do that. Ahmet Nugetre. Bright Lights, Big City. Jimmy Reed. I Believe to My Soul. Ray Charles. Worried Life Blues.
