Anthem Recommends Books in Honor of May Day

International Workers Day, May Day, Workers Day, whatever day you are observing here are some great reads by Latin writers. 


By Anthem Book Review

In honor of May Day 2017 Anthem Books & Writing would like to recommend a few of our “Top Shelf Books” – so, if you are staying home in protest,  Anthem Books & Writing highly recommends relaxing and reading the following books:

This is my personal copy and as you can see
I've read it to physical book exhaustion.
The Devil’s Highway by Luis Alberto Urrea. This is a beautiful true story of 26 Mexicans in search of a better life that attempt to cross the Arizona desert. Urrea beautifully weaves together the lives of these men and takes you on their journey; it is a journey you will never fully return from. The Devil’s Highway grabs your soul and fills your mind with such understanding of why many make the trek through a diabolical desert for America.

All They Will Call You by Tim Z. Hernandez.  28 Mexican farmworkers being deported to Mexico are killed when the plane fails. Beautiful Hernandez, as always, writes a heartbreaking, informative true story of the Los Gatos Plane Crash. He recreates the past for us; he brings back the dead through vivid careful storytelling and introduces the reader to 28 hardworking individuals that will remain with the reader long after the book is closed. Hernandez is from the Central Valley, and one of our finest investigative writers.

A Thousand Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The best book on earth- If you haven’t read this book, you haven’t lived. Read this book. Then reread this book at a slower pace, savor the written word. Then, learn Spanish, if you don’t already and read it in its original language. And thank me later for encouraging you to read this masterpiece. J
