Editor’s comment:  I read too many books this month since we are essentially still in lockdown here.  None were particularly good, I’m sorry to say, and I tried fiction and non-fiction.  This one, however I would highly recommend for fellow thriller readers.  I avoided buying it for some time due to controversy surrounding the book.  The high-minded are outraged that the author is not a native Mexican and the book contains historical inaccuracies and stereotypes.  Using that bent mirror, however, I’m guessing about half the greatest American novels would be banned particularly many that were as troubling and topical to their times as “American Dirt”.
