All the Crooked Saints
Here is a thing everyone wants:
Here is a thing everyone fears:
What it takes to get one.
Any visitor to Bicho Raro, Colorado is likely to find a landscape
of dark saints, forbidden love, scientific dreams, miracle-mad owls,
estranged affections, one or two orphans, and a sky full of
watchful desert stars.
At the heart of this place you will find the Soria family, who all
have the ability to perform unusual miracles. And at the heart
of this family are three cousins longing to change its future: Beatriz,
the girl without feelings, who wants only to be free to examine
her thoughts; Daniel, the Saint of Bicho Raro, who performs
miracles for everyone but himself; and Joaquin, who spends his nights
running a renegade radio station under the name Diablo Diablo.
They are all looking for a miracle. But the miracles of Bicho Raro
are never quite what you expect.
