This is a world where the Angels fly, where Satan wars and protectors fight. With wings to soar and bend the wind, they must seek to find a golden ring, within it holds the memories of the soul of a once great angel, Raziel. This is a world where who is, is who is not. Where Angels strife. Where Demons fought. All over the world does the searching ensue, waging battles together, and in the mind too. Alongside the Centurions, Vampires, Giants and Ghosts, he fights among Angels for humanitys home. This is a world of backwards desire, where he may love a man, but find hearts elsewhere brighter. For what he thought what was may not simply be that, for what we know about love is one cant decide where its at. This is a world about finding oneself, while submerged in a world as somebody else. A story so bold one cant blame this young man, for doubting existence while seeking it out.

Its time that people on the street have more access to truth about things that directly affect them. Some of you may think that this is a novel, to be burnt after reading. I strongly differ with you on that point; Marvin Gaye had it right years ago, when he asked the question Whats Going On? For those of us on the streets we need to know, if we are going to survive in this world. No, dont burn the novel, go find out whats going on in your community, city, county, state, and country. Know who you are sleeping with, whats happening to your children, and will you have any grand children, and what kind of life will they have? Truth is, often stranger than fiction!

In a stunning narrative combining the gritty rhythms of Junot Diaz with the noir genius of Walter Mosley, Bodega Dreams pulls us into Spanish Harlem, where the word is out: Willie Bodega is king. Need college tuition for your daughter? Start-up funds for your fruit stand? Bodega can help. He gives everyone a leg up, in exchange only for loyalty—and a steady income from the drugs he pushes. Lyrical, inspired, and darkly funny, this powerful debut novel brilliantly evokes the trial of Chino, a smart, promising young man to whom Bodega turns for a favor. Chino is drawn to Bodega's street-smart idealism, but soon finds himself over his head, navigating an underworld of switchblade tempers, turncoat morality, and murder.
