Comprehending Forever by Rich Villar is the highly anticipated poetry collection by the talented, word-wise Rich Villar.

2013 Pen/Faulkner Winner by the gifted Benjamin Alire Saenz
A timely and wonderful collection of Salvadoran poetry in English and Spanish.
The Stories I Read to the Children by Lisa Sánchez Gonzalez. From School Library Journal: "This presentation of the library work and writing of Pura Belpré will likely be both frustrating and inspiring to librarians."
From Xanath Caraza's "Lo Que Trae La Marea/What the Tide Brings is a bilingual collection perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon. It can be enjoyed in one sitting."


"Fred Arroyo's impeccably crafted collection of short fiction, Western Avenue and Other Fictions, brings to life a set of characters locked into the dead-end squirrel cage of immigrant workers. Some of these characters will be familiar to readers of Arroyo's brilliant debut novel, The Region of Lost Names, also published by the University of Arizona Press. This is not one of the trendy novels-in-stories, which so frequently dot the current literary landscape, but the collection does form a narrative, circling back through time and the perspectives of different characters within the narrative." --Linda L. Rodriguez
Gerardo Mena's debut poetry collection is a significantly lyrical contribution to war literature.
