US Kirkus Review » A literary obeisance pays tribute to the dominant, difficult, impetuous, impatient, charming, romantic Raquel Elaine Rose Hoheb Williams- his mother- in the acknowledgement of "what I find good in my own life". In his own words, but chiefly in hers, in the recording of scattered conversations held with her from 1924 to her death, the memoir consists of occasional sayings- trivial to timeless- of dreams- of a poem (her only one)- of passing phrases occasionally in French or Spanish, as his mother was Puerto Rican born, then went to Paris as an art student before she settled down to domesticity. Her last years,handicapped by blindness, deafness, and a broken hip, did not impair her spirit which survives here in the fragmentation of remembered "intervals".... A personal, and in a sense special momento. (Kirkus Reviews)
