Tonatiuh's People

Lou DuBose
Among editors in the United States, the peripatetic Ross is known for his prolific filing of stories from Mexico City and the most remote corners of the Mexican republic, his journalistic and personal courage, and his occasional habit of using Latinate cognates that exist in neither English or Spanish: a result of years of reporting in Spanish and immediately writing in English.
Alex Cox
Ross is an important journalist (perhaps the most important reporter writing in English on these matters), and a vivid fiction writer. His nose for bullshit and hypocrisy coexists with a real empathy for a great nation and for her valiant people.
John Nichols
Tonatiuh‘s People is a roller coaster ride through a fabulous and doomed landscape, rich beyond belief, bitched beyond comprehension. Ross's language bubbles up like fresh magma, jolting, colloquial, angry and inventive. The end result is a tragic and beautiful cry in the dark.
