Drowning Tucson by Aaron Michael Morales
This debut novel captures the desperation of people trapped by poverty and violence. Set in the rough and tumble neighborhoods surrounding Tucson, the book tells various stories of characters struggling to survive. Although the violence makes some stories tough to read at times, the cinematic language sucks you into this neighborhood. Comparisons to Richard Wright’s Native Son are well deserved.
