Sergio Troncoso Wins Silver Award from Foreword Reviews

A Peculiar Kind of Immigrant's Son (Cinco Puntos Press) wins the Silver Award for Multicultural Adult Fiction in ForeWord Reviews' Book of the Year Awards.

"This is a world-class collection." ---Luis Alberto Urrea

"The El Paso author's newest collection depicts contemporary Mexican American life with a characteristic blend of sorrow and humor. It's his most powerful work yet, and an essential addition to the Latinx canon." ---The Texas Observer

"Chicano literature began with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, when a sizable Latino population was separated from its land and heritage. Sergio Troncoso has written brilliantly of this disruption and its pull." ---Journal of Alta California
