RETURN TO ARROYO GRANDE
Odd things continue to happen to the characters that renowned author and filmmaker Jesús Salvador Treviño introduced in his captivating debut The Fabulous Sinkhole and Other Stories. At the theme park where Choo Choo Torres works, people begin to disappear–and then reappear slightly changed; are they moving back and forth between alternate universes? Charlie Villalobos keeps blacking out and losing days; could it be that he exists only in someone’s dreams? Weaving magical realism with issues of loss, memory and identity, Jesús Salvador Treviño once again confirms his place as a powerful storyteller in Chicano–and American–literature.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT RETURN TO ARROYO GRANDE
“A fascinating and enjoyable journey into the paranormal.. The question is: Do the stories present the fractured psyche of the characters, or do they really live in a parallel universe connected only by wormholes? Kudos to Treviño for this most imaginative book.”
-Rudy Anaya, author Bless Me Ultima
“Here is the Chicano homeland which, through unforeseen, sudden and unsettling events falls into fantastic wormholes, its present, past and future become a strange right now. Trevino’s stories are as much graphic novel or comic book, except he’s done it all in black and white, with words alone.”
-Dagoberto Gilb, author Before The End, After the Beginning

John Carpenter, writer/director of The Thing, Halloween, They Live, and The Fog

"The characters without exception are compassionately drawn and memorable...this book is for anyone who enjoys imaginative tales with a positive and humorous outlook on the human condition." The Tennessean
"The characters in these loosely linked tales, cause a visitor to exclaim, "It reminds me of tutti frutti ice cream!" All those tastes, she goes on to explain, leave you feeling so good inside. Just so, these stories." The Bloomsbury Review
