Set in the desert of Barstow, California, where Gabriela, the wife of career soldier Benito, dives into a surreal fantasy world during her husband’s prolonged absences and imagines the mating rituals between a coyote and a cat.

“On a moonlit July night in Barstow, California, strange, seductive things can happen, especially if you talk to the moon, which is portrayed as an aging, violin-playing dandy in a Panama hat and white suit. Don’t expect any literal answers from REFERENCES TO SALVADOR DALI MAKE ME HOT, José Rivera’s surreal romance in which love, lust and longing mix it up, bewitching a twenty-seven year-old housewife awaiting the return of her soldier-husband from overseas. Rivera’s intriguing fantasy…. celebrates the confusion that grows out of trying to understand not only the one you love but yourself as well. It is a meditation on the impossible, but told in a provocative manner by Rivera, a writer whose language manages to be poetic and earthy at the same time.” —Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press
