Set mainly in California's Central Valley, Manuel Munoz's collection of stories goes beyond the traditional family myths and narratives of Chicano literature and explores, instead, the constant struggle of characters against their physical and personal surroundings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Sweet, moody, sexy, cruel. Stories told with such tenderness, they leave
you with your heart aching." -Sandra Cisneros, author of Caramelo and The House on Mango Street

"Munoz's Central Valley is a part of California--a part of America--that has yet to see many liberations: gay, women's or economic liberation from restrictions imposed for so long on people with brown skin. If his vision is full of despair, so is the reality that his characters must endure; he is much too truthful a writer to present false hope. Zigzagger is a book to read if you want to see another California, one that might be unfamiliar but is home to millions. It heralds the arrival of a gifted and sensitive writer." --Los Angeles Times
"Zigzagger is what happens when a genre grows up-when it matures to a level where the only lesson from reading a book that happens to be written by a Latino author is what happens when language and voice and stunning storytelling come from such an extraordinary talent."
--Hartford Courant
