Luis Alberto Urrea

Joe Mazza/Brave-Lux

Luis Alberto Urrea, a 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist and member of the Latino Literature Hall of Fame, is an acclaimed writer who uses his dual-culture life experiences to explore greater themes of love, loss and triumph. An American Book Award winner, New York Times Notable Book honoree and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Urrea has made his mark in fiction, nonfiction and poetry. His newest book is "House of Broken Angels." Here he crafts the San Diego-set story of a final birthday party thrown for fading patriarch Miguel Angel De La Cruz, known to everyone as Big Angel. When his ancient mother dies unexpectedly, the event turns into a celebration of the family's history ... the definitive Mexican American immigrant story and a quintessentially American story.
