In their new novels, award-winning authors Angie Cruz (Dominicana) and Karl Marlantes (Deep River), spin true family stories into riveting fiction, portraying the lives of a Dominican family in New York City in the 1960s and Finnish immigrants in the Pacific Northwest in the early 1900s. Where do the lines between truth and fiction blend? What did they learn about themselves and their own family as they researched and wrote?
