Hector Tobar

“Our Migrant Souls,” by Héctor Tobar. This deeply personal meditation on the Latino experience reflects the author’s years teaching Latino students at U.C. Irvine as well as several decades spent reporting on immigration, culture and Latin America. From our review: “Tobar is unpreoccupied with settling on a fixed definition of ‘Latino.’ Instead, like a sculptor chipping away at a mass of stone, he is interested in revealing a human shape within it.”
