Domyślnie The House of Broken Angels

The House of Broken Angels

The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea
English | March 6, 2018 | ISBN: 0316154881 | EPUB | 336 pages | 0.5 MB

NATIONAL BESTSELLER * From a Pulitzer Prize finalist comes a powerful and unforgettable portrait of one Mexican American family and the American dream.

"Epic . . . Rambunctious . . . Highly entertaining." -New York Times Book Review

"A raucous, moving, and necessary book . . . Intimate and touching . . . the stuff of legend." -San Francisco Chronicle

"Brilliant . . . Exceptional . . . The House of Broken Angels hums with joy." -NPR

"An immensely charming and moving tale." -Boston Globe

"A book about celebration that it, itself, a celebration." -Washington Post

"All we do, mija, is love. Love is the answer. Nothing stops it. Not borders. Not death."

In his final days, beloved and ailing patriarch Miguel Angel de La Cruz, affectionately called Big Angel, has summoned his entire clan for one last legendary birthday party. But as the party approaches, his mother, nearly one hundred, dies herself, leading to a farewell doubleheader in a single weekend. Among the guests is Big Angel's half brother, known as Little Angel, who must reckon with the truth that although he shares a father with his siblings, he has not, as a half gringo, shared a life.

Across two bittersweet days in their San Diego neighborhood, the revelers mingle among the palm trees and cacti, celebrating the lives of Big Angel and his mother, and recounting the many inspiring tales that have passed into family lore, the acts both ordinary and heroic that brought these citizens to a fraught and sublime country and allowed them to flourish in the land they have come to call home.

The story of the de La Cruzes is the quintessential American story. This indelible portrait of a complex family reminds us of what it means to be the first generation and to live two lives across one border. It takes us into a world we have not known, while reflecting back the hopes and dreams of our own families. Teeming with brilliance and humor, authentic at every turn, The House of Broken Angels is Luis Alberto Urrea at his best, and cements his reputation as a storyteller of the first rank.
