“Ebullient and assertive. . . . Francisca’s soul stinks up the place beautifully in Fiebre Tropical.” —The New York Times
“What Lopera pulls from that [Miami] heat in an inimitable voice is a bold, stylistic, and deeply moving examination of generational sadness, deferred desire, and the budding seeds of personal revolution that is entirely their own.” —Los Angeles Review of Books
“Its language—funny and intelligent and fresh—glitters.” —Jezebel
"Juli Delgado Lopera—remember that name—is an irreverent, shameless and disarming new novelist. They are a merciless satirist in control of a pitch-perfect voice." —Jaime Manrique, NBC News
“Gorgeous, firecracker-like bilingual prose and a good dose of humor—even as it emotionally shatters.” —The Seattle Times
“Fiebre Tropical crackles and hums like neon, embedding contagious energy in the coming-of-age story of Francisca.” —them.
“A layered portrait of exile, sexual awakening, and family bonds.” —The Millions
