“Lose your best friend because you finally Came Out. Spend days driving aimlessly because there’s nothing to do. Serve your rapist breakfast because you need your job. Fall asleep to gunshots and sirens because that’s the only sense of home you’ve ever known. Hold hands with ghosts. Your life is in pieces, but you can’t be broken. Wipe off the blood. Tired of being told who to be, what to wear, how to act and who to fuck. Break the rules and learn fast how to never get caught. All you need is nothing, but you’re happy with your car, guitar and camera. Throwing around polaroids of tits like they’re money, you swap stories about adventures and realize that we’re all running away from something. “

“Rios de la Luz’s writing blows minds and breaks hearts. A sort of new and bizarre Tomás Rivera, Rios is able to blend the familiar of the domestic with the all the wilderness of the universe. Her stories will grab you in places you didn’t know you had, take you by those places to where you’ve always wanted to go—though you never knew how to get there. Buy this book and enjoy that journey.” —Brian Allen Carr “In The Pulse between Dimensions and the Desert, Rios de la Luz’s writing is electric and alive. It grabs you and pulls you into her universe, one that is both familiar and foreign, a place where Martians find love, bad guys get their ears cut off, and time travel agents save lost children. In this innovative, heartfelt debut, de la Luz takes her place as a young author that demands to be read and watched.” —Juliet Escoria
