Benjamin Alire Sáenz's stories are of the knock-you-over-powerful variety.

These seven stories-- set in the border towns of Juárez and El Paso, with many of them touching on the wave of violence that engulfed Juárez in the '90s-- all have a connection to the Kentucky Club, a venerable Juárez institution.

Winner of the PEN/Faulkner award and a Lambda Literary award, this book deserves a wider audience.
