“… Bacigalupa is an antidote for the clever vacuousness of much modern fiction … a true storyteller, more than a smith of nuance. The author’s instinct for human understanding—of compassion for a man’s or woman’s frailties, of the timeless urge for integrity and peace with one’s soul—makes Bacigalupa’s people live … the characters in For Having Offended Thee struggle with loyalties cultural, spiritual, sexual and geographical, forced to come to grips with the darkness of their own particular shortcomings, and to glimpse what personal redemption really may mean ... I’d love to see this story on the screen.”

Richard Polese, Southwest Book Views
