Here she chronicles the poor with compassion and respect, and depicts their moments of joy with the only language worthy of such heightspoetry."Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street"Erika T. Wurth's first novel, Crazy Horse's Girlfriend, is gritty and tough and sad beyond measure; but is also contains startling, heartfelt moments of hope and love. In my opinion, a writer can't do much better than that."Donald Ray Pollock, author of Knockemstiff and The Devil All the TimeMargaritte is a sharp-tongued, drug-dealing, sixteen-year-old Native American floundering in a Colorado town crippled by poverty, unemployment, and drug abuse.
