    Description

    A new short-story collection from Luis Alberto Urrea, best-selling author of The Hummingbird's Daughter and The Devil's Highway.

    From one of America's preeminent literary voices comes a new story collection that proves once again why the writing of Luis Alberto Urrea has been called "wickedly good" (Kansas City Star), "cinematic and charged" (Cleveland Plain Dealer), and "studded with delights" (Chicago Tribune). 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.

    Luis Alberto Urrea is the Chicano Mark Twain

    Beautiful, huanting, poetic, and soul moving. Luis Alberto Urrea is a man who dives into the deepest corners of our souls and elegantly transfers his thoughts into delightful prose. Life is never a dull moment when analyzed in his writings and he sheds light on the little beauties in life we often miss.


    Urrea captivates you with a collection of short stories that will move you, make you laugh, and make you think.

    The author’s voice is perfect for these stories.

    Urrea’s warmth and crackle wraps the stories around you until it’s you and the protagonist working to beat the odds. May I be able to recognize another’s humanity, as these main characters do time and again. And may there never be a need for a Water Museum.

    So powerful, so honest, so *everything*.

    These stories hit every deep emotion I possess: grief, fear, laughter, regret. Two stories left me in tears. I cannot imagine anyone more suited to narrating this book than the author himself. It is, all of it, quite simply, beautiful. ❤

    Rich, Vital, Need More

    Great Americana in its full spectrum. Getting by is hard, hearts are troubled, but it beats the vacuous alternative.
