Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
In a debut novel that captures the gritty and authentic rhythms of the urban Latino experience, Chino, a promising young man, finds himself drawn into the dangerous world of Willy Bodega, who rules Spanish Harlem, exchanging financial assistance for loyalty and income from the drugs he pushes.

Review:
"What a delight...to read the first pages of Ernesto Quinonez's BODEGA DREAMS and find oneself plopped down in the middle of a world that arrives not frozen in some incomplete stage of gestation, but breathing, alive and whole....But [f]or all the savvy Quinonez demonstrates in his first-person narration, the storytelling is too often bogged down by overtly expository dialogue that sounds as if it will be cut and pasted directly into the inevitable screenplay....Yet there are also many beautifully realized moments...."

Ted Foster, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 03/12/2000

Review:
"An even more vibrant, thrilling character looms over all the others: Spanish Harlem itself. It is this neighborhood, its history and geography, that propels Quiñonez's pulsing, cinematic narrative (and, yes, the film is already in production)....Quiñonez's tale is feisty and hard-hitting...; the characters are vivid, sharp-mouthed and wiseass....Here's an edgy, streetwise first novel wrapped in the magnificent and tattered hand-me-down cloth of dreams that remains Spanish Harlem."

Anderson Tepper, Salon, 03/16/2000

Book Description: Vintage Books USA, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 203 x 132 mm. Brand New Book. A new and authentic voice of the urban Latino experience. --Esmeralda Santiago, author of When I Was Puerto Rican In a stunning narrative combining the gritty rhythms of Junot Diaz with the noir genius of Walter Mosley, Bodega Dreams announces the arrival of a writer who The Village Voice has already hailed as a Writer on the Verge. The word is out in Spanish Harlem: Willy Bodega is king. Need college tuition for your daughter? Start-up funds for your fruit stand? Bodega can help. He gives everyone a leg up, in exchange only for loyalty--and a steady income from the drugs he pushes. Lyric, inspired, and darkly funny, this powerful debut novel brilliantly evokes the trial of Chino, a smart, promising young man to whom Bodega turns for a favor. Chino is drawn to Bodega s street-smart idealism, but soon finds himself over his head, navigating an underworld of switchblade tempers, turncoat morality, and murder.
