‘”The Visit” is a collection of short stories beautifully crafted and carefully written. Set in Peru, and New York, they portray the precarious lives of heroic people who share with us their sublime, enchanted version of the American Dream. These are characters with a heart, who open before us an in- depth vision of what it takes to be courageously human, with a genuine aspiration to personify their own, unique truth. They simply clamor for love and our compassionate recognition of their spiritual longings, their rightful, existential validation in an often frenzied and violent world.’
