"Rarely does a collection of stories, and coruscatingly well crafted ones like Barefoot Dogs, weave an intricate balance of struggle, familial affliction with a diversity deserving of accolades. Ruiz-Camacho’s debut is laudable in scope and the breadth of emotion of the character’s lives altered by a family-tree rooted in atrocity is literally breathtaking. He will undoubtedly be on the radar for years to come, and we need to be sure to celebrate the appearance of an author as creatively endowed as Antonio."— Jim B.
“What people lose defines how they live their lives and this vibrant collection of stories illustrates this point with a literary verve that is electrifying! When the patriarch of a rich and thriving Mexican family is kidnapped, the family scatters across the world to save themselves. Ruiz-Camacho focuses on the lives of the rich and privileged in Mexican society, so used to servants and having things done for them that when the Arteaga family is left to its own devices, they have difficulty coping. This is a very entertaining and moving collection of interwoven stories highlighting the profound talent of a new author. Thought-provoking and memorable.”
