March Super Staff Pick
The House of Broken Angels
by Luis Alberto Urrea
Available for 20% off!

One of the Most Anticipated Books of 2018 is hitting the shelves in March.

From a Pulitzer Prize finalist comes a powerful and unforgettable portrait of one Mexican American family and the American dream. 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.
"One of the most vivid and engrossing family epics of the last twenty years."
Dave Eggers
