“In American Brujeria, J, Allen Cross finds a way to explore the heritage and practices of Mexican folk and spiritual traditions by building on their foundations and making them approachable to American (and beyond) audiences searching for the magia (magic) and - wisdom of their own culture. We need more authors of color like Cross to illuminate these rich and time-honored practices.” — Alexis A. Arredondo and Eric J.
