The Flowers

“Sherman Alexie meets Junot Diaz,” reads one of the many glowing blurbs for Dagoberto Gilb’s new novel, The Flowers. But “Kurt Vonnegut meets Philip Roth” may be a far more apt comparison. The Flowers reveals a writer at the height of his powers, at ease with characters both unique and archetypal, a plot that caroms like a heat-seeking missile, and thematic concerns from the many faces of love, racial prejudice and violence, and hope in spite of shattered dreams.
