Out of Their Minds

Gustavo Arellano, OC Weekly editor, author of ¡Ask a Mexican!
Cinco Puntos' translation of this Mexican cult classic is the wisest American appropriation of south-of-the-border smarts since the taco. The rip-roaring allegory of Mexican music legends reads like Voltaire drunk on tequila.
Shelf Awareness
Wry, lyrical and frequently funny, the story of Ramón and Cornelio is indeed incredible and sometimes sad; but the music plays on and we continue to revel in it. … A bizarre and entertaining tale of two Mexican norteño musicians guided by God--and the price they pay for their fame.
