Om författaren

He earned a B.A. in English in 1963, an M.A. in 1968 and a second M.A. in Guidance Counseling in 1972 from the University of New Mexico. During the 1960s, Anaya taught in the Albuquerque public schools. In visa mer 1974 he began to teach at the University of New Mexico and earned the title of professor emeritus in 1993. Anaya's first novel, Bless Me, Ultima began as a trilogy including Heart of Aztlan (1976), and Tortuga (1979). This loose trilogy based on his life experience as a Chicano child, formed Anaya's reputation. Anaya mixed old Spanish folk tales based on the oral tradition with a theme of loss, specifically the loss of religious belief. In 1993, he won the PEN West Center Fiction Award for his novel Albuquerque. 1995 Anaya received both the El Fuego Nuevo Award from the Mexican American Educators and the Excellence in Humanities Award from the New Mexico Endowment for the Humanities. Anaya has lectured extensively around the world. His works have been translated into many languages such as Italian, Russian and Japanese. With his wife Patricia, he founded the Aztlan Premio, a prize encouraging Chicano writers. Anaya resides in Albuquerque. In 2016, President Barack Obama awarded him the National Humanities Medal.

Allmänna fakta



I've read just about every Anaya book. This was my least favorite

3.5 stars. It's hard to believe that the person who wrote this cheezy detective novel also wrote Bless Me, Ultima. But it's true.

Not the strongest of Anaya's books. I think he got a bit distracted by his shaman lore and history research to where the story became more just filler this time. The result is still ok, but some of the dialogue sections are really awkward.

I read this in college for a Latino Studies class. For some reason it's been coming to mind often in the past year or so..but all I could remember was that I loved a book that had something to do with a golden fish! Today I finally figured out the name of the book that keeps tugging at my memory. I will be reading this again. Soon!
