Luis Alberto Urrea was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for his landmark work of nonficiton. The Devil’s Highway. In this novel, Urrea writes about a beloved and ailing patriarch Miguel Angel de La Cruz who  has summoned his entire clan for one last legendary birthday party. But as the party approaches, his mother, nearly one hundred, dies herself. Among the guests is Miguel Angel’s half brother who must reckon with the truth that although he shares a father with his siblings, he has not, as a half gringo, shared a life. This indelible portrait of a complex family reminds us of what it means to be the first generation and to live two lives across one border.
