Author Reading: Kathleen Alcala, SPIRITS OF THE ORDINARY (Raven Chronicles)
Set in northern Mexico in the 1870s, Spirits of the Ordinary weaves the stories of women struggling against societal constraints, Mexican Jews practicing their religion in secret, and a gold prospector turned spiritual seeker in a spectacular desert landscape.



Originally published by Chronicle Books in 1997, Spirits incorporates styles and themes that the author has continued to explore in her later novels and nonfiction works: fabulist/speculative fiction, environmental writing, the Mexico-U.S. borderland in the late 19th century, and crypto-Judaism.
