Maria Amparo Escandon

MARIA AMPARO ESCANDON, best-selling bilingual storyteller, was named Writer to Watch by Newsweek and the Los Angeles Times. In her second novel, Gonzalez & Daughter Trucking Co., the incarcerated narrator “reads” to her fellow inmates at the weekly Library Club. As she pretends to recite from the classics, she tells a humorous and passionate mystery that explores the love and hurt of a father and daughter on the run.
