“Sergio Troncoso is one of our most brilliant minds in Latina/o Literature...This is a world-class collection. Troncoso continues to raise the bar for the rest of us.”
---Luis Urrea, author of
The House of Broken Angels and The Hummingbird’s Daughter

A Peculiar Kind of Immigrant’s Son is Troncoso at his absolute finest ... a masterwork bursting with immigrant intimacies, electrifying truths and hard-earned tenderness. This is a book I could not let go of, that took me from El Paso to New England to Mexico and to the labyrinths beyond ... An extraordinary performance.”
---Junot Díaz, Pulitzer-Prize-winning author of
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

“The best part of A Peculiar Kind of Immigrant’s Son is the magic of Troncoso’s language, which sings from each page. This book is a triumph, the work of a master writer at the peak of his game.”
---W. K. Stratton, author of
The Wild Bunch: Sam Peckinpah, A Revolution in Hollywood, and the Making of a Legendary Movie

“Troncoso’s stories are timely and relevant; only with knowledge can one beat back the bear of a colonial past.”
---Christina Chiu, author of
Beauty and Troublemaker and Other Stories
