Cover reveal! The front cover of AMERICAN TUMBLEWEEDS is posted on the front page of our website. The white strip at the top is reserved for praise — which is already flowing in:
Marta Elva’s AMERICAN TUMBLEWEEDS is both a moving coming-of-age story and a compelling tale of border intrigue that goes back in time to give a human face to some of the most divisive and hotly debated issues facing contemporary America. Elva shows an uncanny knack for dialogue and plot as in each chapter she moves back and forth among her characters, unrolling the narrative through each individual’s unique point of view. — Michael Winship, senior writer for Moyers & Company, PBS
Set along the border between El Paso and Ciudad Juárez, AMERICAN TUMBLEWEEDS tells the bittersweet story of a Mexican-American family’s struggle to stay together as tradition collides with the social upheaval of 1960s America. It will be available in Spring 2016, in print and digital editions.
