A shout out for Mikel Miller et al's new anthology, Mexico: Sunlight & Shadows, Short Stories and Essays by Mexico Writers which includes a cornucopia of works by Mexico-based English language writers, including Yours Truly with an excerpt from "Bahía de los Ángeles: Bay of Angels," a chapter of my book Miraculous Air: Journey of a Thousand Miles through Baja California, the Other Mexico.
I'm also thrilled to mention that the cover features the painting "Demon and Angel" by Todos Santos artist Erick Ochoa. I met Ochoa an age ago through my amigo, Michael Cope, a brilliantly accomplished painter, Ochoa's teacher, and owner of Galeria de Todos Santos. (Miraculous Air has a chapter dedicated to Todos Santos and much to say about Cope and other artists in Todos Santos.)

P.S. It was just after I'd written Miraculous Air that I happened upon the then little-known Far West Texas town of Marfa, which seemed to me a doppelgänger of Todos Santos, and so sparked the idea of writing another travel memoir. I didn't start my book about Far West Texas until more than a decade later, however (a novel and a biography of sorts intervened). It's a work in-progress, and I'm posting podcasts as I go — mainly of interviews.
