Kaimana Wolff is the writer I hope I can someday be. Her mastery of the craft has left me in tears and laughter more times than I can count while reading La Chiripa. I am starving, ravenous, for the next instalment — to see Pira’s continuing journey, the battles she will fight and no doubt win. La Chiripa is one of those books that stays with you, in dreams and waking, until you are so caught up in its mystery that it becomes a part of you.
