QUEEN OF AMERICA By Luis Alberto Urrea GIVEAWAY

Did I tell you it was my birthday? It was. Since nobody sent me all kinds of gifts and sang me songs or baked a cake, I thought I'd lay a guilt trip on you all and provide a giveaway for YOU instead.

Aren't I just the nicest thing?

QUEEN OF AMERICA By Luis Alberto Urrea GIVEAWAY

After the bloody Tomochic rebellion, Teresita Urrea, beloved healer and "Saint of Cabora," flees with her father to Arizona. But their plans are derailed when she once again is claimed as the spiritual leader of the Mexican Revolution. Besieged by pilgrims and pursued by assassins, Teresita embarks on a journey through turn-of-the-century industrial America-New York, San Francisco, St. Louis. She meets immigrants and tycoons, European royalty and Cuban poets, all waking to the new American century. And as she decides what her own role in this modern future will be, she must ask herself: can a saint fall in love?

At turns heartbreaking, uplifting, and riotously funny, QUEEN OF AMERICA reconfirms Luis Alberto Urrea's status as a writer of the first rank.
