Stephen Gutierrez’s Book Prize

Stephen D. Gutierrez, a contributor to the premiere issue of Arroyo, has been awarded an American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation for his collection of short stories, Live from Fresno y Los (Bear Star Press, 2009).

Live from Fresno y Los was nominated by Rudolfo Anaya, author of Bless Me, Ultima, who praises the book’s “refreshing, cinematic prose style,” “eye for detail” and “narrative voice.”

“This is one of the most compelling collections of short stories I’ve read in a long time,” Anaya writes; “Gutierrez raises important questions in his fiction. Writers like Gutierrez make the old veteranos proud.”
