The Devil's Highway, his 2004 non-fiction account of a group of Mexican immigrants lost in the Arizona desert, won the Lannan Literary Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the Pacific Rim Kiriyama Prize. An historical novel, The Hummingbird's Daughter tells the story of Teresa Urrea, sometimes known as the Saint of Cabora and the Mexican Joan of Arc. After serving as a relief worker in Tijuana and a film extra and columnist-editor-cartoonist for several publications, Urrea moved to Boston where he taught expository writing and fiction workshops at Harvard. He has also taught at Massachusetts Bay Community College and the University of Colorado and he was the writer in residence at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. Urrea lives with his family in Naperville, IL, where he is a professor of creative writing at the University of Illinois-Chicago.

Reviews

"Wandering Time pays homage to Urrea's literary heroes from Basho to Brautigan and Bukowski. It provides a great balance of stream of consciousness, slice-of-life anecdotes, and valuable writing advice."--Fjords Review

"His stream-of-consciousness entries, filled with Urrea's playful, introspective language, help him exorcise personal demons while painting vivid, original portraits of nature and the people who roam through it."--Latina

"At once personal and universal, written with the introspection and intimacy of the journal and the notebook as well as with the reverence and attention of nature writing."--World Literature Today

"This is a book about letting go and starting over--about what is important enough to put into your pocket."--Foreword Magazine
