“Obejas brilliantly manages to transmit the blunt succinctness of Velazquez’ narrative without losing the Mexican folklore.

The Cowboy Bible‘s translation weaves English in with terms and names in Spanish to keep the rhythm of the narrative flowing.” Read more of Asymptote‘s review of The Cowboy Bible, by Carlos Velázquez, here.
