Manuel Munoz is an award-winning Mexican American novelist, short story writer, and professor at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. His short story collection, The Faith Healer of Olive Avenue, was a finalist for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award. He is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts literature fellowship and the prestigious Whiting Award, and is currently teaching creative writing at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

"The setting is Bakersfield, California, in the late 1950s. A dusty, quiet town, too far from Los Angeles to share that city’s energy, yet close enough to Hollywood to fill its citizens with the kinds of dreams they discover in the darkness of the movie theater. For Teresa, a young, aspiring singer who works at the shoe store, her dream lies in the music her mother shared with her, plaintive songs of love and longing. And in Dan Watson, the most desirable young man in Bakersfield, she believes she has found someone to help her realize those dreams.

When a famous Actress arrives from Hollywood with a great and already legendary director, local gossip about the young lovers turns to speculation about the celebrated visitors there to work on what will become an iconic, groundbreaking film of madness and murder at a roadside motel. No one in Bakersfield anticipates how the ill-fated love affair between Dan and Teresa will soon rival anything the director could ever put on screen.

A penetrating look at people searching for meaning and authenticity in lives played out under watchful eyes, this thoroughly original work is intense and fascinating in its juxtapositions of tenderness and menace, violence and regret, and its atmosphere recreation of a place on a brink of change."

‘[A] stellar first novel…with a subtlety worthy of Hitchcock himself.' — Publishers Weekly

'Muñoz has hit upon a killer premise: the making of Psycho set against a real-life murder.' — Booklist

'Manuel Muñoz’s vividly suspenseful first novel is a fine blend of Hitchcock’s chilly elegance and the sordid passions of James M. Cain: a dark, intimate, heartbreaking tale about four very different women, each one longing to escape the confines of her everyday life through the romantic illusions concocted by Hollywood. Their voices will haunt me for some time to come.' — Julia Glass

251 pages.
