“Luis Alberto Urrea is a master storyteller, and he delivers a masterwork with The House of the Broken Angels . . . Through the magical power of Urrea’s writing, we become healed and whole. And we laugh and tear up and shake our heads in wonder all the way to the ending of a book we don’t want to end. Urrea delivers on every page.”

—Julia Alvarez, author of How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents


Luis Alberto Urrea


A 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist for nonfiction and member of the Latino Literature Hall of Fame, Urrea is the critically acclaimed and best-selling author of 17 books, winning numerous awards for his poetry, fiction and essays. Born in Tijuana to a Mexican father and American mother, Urrea is most recognized as a border writer, though he says, “I am more interested in bridges, not borders.”
