Overview

This hard-hitting, beautiful short story collection from one of America's preeminent literary voices "reflect[s] both sides of his Mexican-American heritage while stretching the reader's understanding of human boundaries" (Kirkus). Examining the borders between one nation and another, between one person and another, Urrea reveals his mastery of the short form. This collection includes the Edgar-award winning "Amapola" and his now-classic "Bid Farewell to Her Many Horses," which had the honor of being chosen for NPR's "Selected Shorts" not once but twice. Suffused with wanderlust, compassion, and no small amount of rock and roll, The Water Museum is a collection that confirms Luis Alberto Urrea as an American master.
