Humane yet often horrifying, Tell Me How It Ends offers a compelling, intimate look at a continuing crisis--and its ongoing cost in an age of increasing urgency. --Jeremy Garber, Powells Books

P>>Valeria Luisellis extended essay on her volunteer work translating for child immigrants confronts with compassion and honesty the problem of the North American refugee crisis. Its a rare thing: a book everyone should read. --Stephen Sparks, Point Reyes Books

Tell Me How It Ends evokes empathy as it educates. It is a vital contribution to the body of post-Trump work being published in early 2017.--Katharine Solheim, Unabridged Bookstore

While this essay is brilliant for exactly what it depicts, it helps open larger questions, which were ever more on the precipice of now, of where all of this will go, how all of this might end. Is this a story, or is this beyond a story? Valeria Luiselli is one of those brave and eloquent enough to help us see.--Rick Simonson, Elliott Bay Book Company

Appealing to the language of the United States fraught immigration policy, Luiselli exposes the cracks in this foundation. Herself an immigrant, she highlights the human cost of its brokenness, as well as the hope that it (rather than walls) might be rebuilt.--Brad Johnson, Diesel Bookstore

The bureaucratic labyrinth of immigration, the dangers of searching for a better life, all of this and more is contained in this brief and profound work. Tell Me How It Ends is not just relevant, its essential.--Mark Haber, Brazos Bookstore
