Luis Alberto Urrea

Fiction, Nonfiction

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20120914. 20120504

Luis Alberto Urrea is perhaps best-known for his nonfiction.  His memoir, Nobody's Son: Notes from an American Life, won the 1999 American Book Award and his book The Devil's Highway: A True Story, about a controversial border-crossing, was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction.  But Urrea--the author of four novels and a graphic novel, in addition to collections of short stories and poetry--is equally adept at fiction.  In this interview, he discusses the craft of writing and talks about how the research for his novels The Hummingbird's Daughter and Queen of America changed the way he thinks about the intersections of family legend and history.
