In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, NBC News has included Ray Gonzalez's new book, Beautiful Wall, on its list of "10 New Books by Established Latino Authors." According to reviewer Rigoberto González, Beautiful Wall allows "the reader to experience this expansive American terrain through [its] image-driven verse." "The U.S.-Mexico border," the review continues, "is where histories and stories converge, not always pleasant but not always tragic, and certainly worth considering. Magic awaits the keen observer, the careful listener." Along with other authors on the list, including Sandra Cisneros, Judith Ortiz Cofer, Luis Alberto Urrea, and U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera, Gonzalez is called a "prominent writer" who helped produce "the foundational texts that shape the Latino literary canon." See the complete list of "10 New Books by Established Latino Authors" at NBCNews.com. Discover more of Gonazalez's works, including Beautiful Wall, at the BOA Bookstore.
