Terrific news comes ...

... by way of The Elegant Variation: The Kiriyama Prize has gone to Luis Alberto Urrea's The Hummingbird's Daughter. Urrea is a fine writer and a classy guy. I reviewed his nonfiction book The Devil's Highway, a beautifully written and deeply moving piece of reportage. Everybody should read it before forming an opinion regarding the immigration issue.
