PERSPECTIVES: Sergio Troncoso

Credit www.sergiotroncoso.com

Louie and Sergio Troncoso catch up on a few years since Troncoso last visited "Perspectives."

Troncoso teaches writing workshops at the Hudson Valley Writers’ Center, and is a resident faculty member of the Yale Writers’ Conference.

The son of Mexican immigrants, Sergio Troncoso was born and grew up in the unincorporated neighborhood or colonia of Ysleta on the outskirts of El Paso, Texas. His parents built their adobe house, and the family lived with kerosene lamps and stoves and an outhouse in the backyard during their first years in Texas.

His books and esssay collections include: "Our Lost Border: Essays on Life amid the Narco-Violence," "From This Wicked Patch of Dust," "Crossing Borders: Personal Essays," "The Nature of Truth," and "The Last Tortilla and Other Stories," which garnered the author the prestigious Premio Aztlan Literary Prize.

Troncoso reads from "From This Wicked Patch of Dust" and "Our Lost Border: Essays on Life amid the Narco-Violence."
