Week of July 20, 2005 | Luis Alberto Urrea

THE HUMMINGBIRD'S DAUGHTER, written by Luis Alberto Urrea, is one of the most enjoyable novels that I have read in the past couple of years. 

It chronicles the life of Teresita, a woman who lives in Mexico during the days of Porfirio Diaz. Teresita has been given extraordinary powers that develop as she matures. 

The novel is filled with colorful characters and beautiful prose. If you are looking for something truly different you will love THE HUMMINGBIRD'S DAUGHTER. This is Part One of my interview with Mr. Urrea. Part Two will air in September.

I hope you enjoy our conversation.
