Tim Z. Hernandez
All They Will Call You Combining years of painstaking investigative research and masterful storytelling, Tim Z. Hernandez reconstructs the harrowing account of “the worst airplane disaster in California’s history,” which claimed the lives of thirty-two passengers, including at least twenty-eight Mexican citizens—farmworkers who were being deported by the U.S. government. Pushing narrative boundaries, while challenging perceptions of what it means to be an immigrant in America, Hernandez renders intimate portraits of the individual souls who, despite social status, race, or nationality, shared a common fate one frigid morning in January 1948.
