Set on the Mexico-California border, Mexicali Blues is a moody collection of 10 short stories that illustrates how the small choices we make every day bring redemption or loss, salvation or downfall.

In the Foreword, John Hemingway, grandson of Ernest Hemingway, says “The image Joseph gives of the California-Mexican Border and the people who live there is at the same time realistic and romantic, poetic and matter of fact. Tables are often turned and the strong and the weak are defeated by a culture that knows no pity, no remorse.”
