“A powerful memoir that charts a daughter’s struggle to save her haunted father, CRUX is alive with family magic and fierce with love.”

Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao

“Jean Guerrero has done excellent reporting from the US/Mexico borderlands. Now she examines the more mysterious borders of family history and that unknown region of the heart. You will be moved by CRUX – this book is powerful and true.”

Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The Devil’s Highway

“Crux is a triumphant memoir driven by the search for home and a father’s elusive love. The twists and unexpected turns across borders are enchanting. A poignant, lovely debut.”

Alfredo Corchado, author of Midnight in Mexico.

“By honoring the profound complexities of the human spirit and psyche, Jean Guerrero’s manuscript ‘Crux’ shows us how any discussion of crossing borders might be enriched by expanding beyond the concepts of nation and culture.”
