I've just finished the first third of Alejandro Morales's The Rag Doll Plagues. Set in the Nueva España of the late eighteenth century, Morales's book brings back to me the pleasure of Graciela Limón's Erased Faces. Both novels deal with the repetition of events and people (I think) and with what we'll call "the supernatural." Rag Doll Plagues might also include alternative futures or time-travel (too soon to say).

Did you ever take a class with Grace? She's so awesome.

Wow you took classes with Limon! At LMU? Lucky you! No I haven't, but I've read ALL of her books several times, and I'm always excited when I introduce someone to her work.
