I turned on the TV an hour ago in a lazy effort to deflect looming responsibilities and stumbled across this Bill Moyers interview with Luis Alberto Urrea, a writer I had never heard of but whose incredibly coherent, compassionate, and compelling understanding of the Mexican/American experience had me glued to the television.  In the ten minutes that have passed since the interview concluded I have already ordered three of Urrea’s books online, and I can now be found anxiously waiting by the mailbox for their arrival.  

Watch this.
