About Heresies:

"A scholar, a painter, an El Greco of boundless darkness and light, a Caliban coming back to laugh and sing. A tour de force. This is an incredible accomplishment--luscious, jeweled, intoxicating, fragrant as copál and sharp as obsidian."
—Juan Felipe Herrera

"Brutally irreverent, reverently made, at once polyphonic and singular in its scope, Heresies is a work of fearless, sublimely syncretic imagination."
—Daniel Tobin
