Brando SkyhorseThe Madonnas of Echo Park

Brando Skyhorse reads from and discusses his debut novel The Madonnas of Echo Park, which takes us into the unseen world of Los Angeles, following the men and women who cook the meals, clean the homes, and struggle to lose their ethnic identity in the pursuit of the American dream. Like the Academy Award-winning film Crash, The Madonnas of Echo Park follows the intersections of its characters and cultures in Los Angeles. In the footsteps of Junot Díaz and Sherman Alexie, Brando Skyhorse in his first novel gives voice to one neighborhood in Los Angeles with an astonishing- and unforgettable-lyrical power.

($23.00) Free Press ISBN #978-1-4391-7080-9. You can visit Brando Skyhorse’s official web site as well.
