When he first started writing, Dagoberto Gilb was struggling to survive as a journeyman high-rise carpenter. Years later, he has won widespread acclaim as a crucial and compelling voice in contemporary American letters. Tackling everything from cockfighting to Cormac McCarthy, Gritos collects Gilb's essays and his popular commentaries for NPR's Fresh Air, offering a startling portrait of an artist-and a Mexican-American- working to find his place in both the cloistered literary world and the world at large, to say nothing of his strange and beloved borderland of Texas.

MEDIA REVIEWS
From "an important voice in American fiction" (Annie Proulx), a collection of essays that cuts to the heart of the Mexican-American experience
"[Gilb's] language is direct and strikingly honest, and yet he is able to illustrate life's transforming moments with a delicate appreciation of their power and evanescence."
"Gilb knows the dirty secrets of manstuck in emotional exile. And he knows, too, the tools of revelation."
"[Gritos] is a collection about prejudice and pride, told with the flair of a storyteller known for his fiction . . . [Gilb] is so interesting, you can't help but pay attention."
