Gutierrez is a professor of creative writing at California State University East Bay. His recent collection of short stories, Live from Fresno y Los, won a 2010 American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation.
Daniel Alarcón, a native of Peru who lives in Oakland, is the author of Lost City Radio, the March 2011 selection of the Mostly Literary Fiction Book Group. The recipient of numerous literary awards for his debut novel and short story collection, War by Candlelight, Alarcón was named by the New Yorker magazine as one of “20 Under 40” writers who will be key to their generation. He is also the editor of the Secret Miracle: The Novelist’s Handbook, which features a wide-ranging, insightful roundtable discussion among some of the world’s best contemporary writers. Alarcón’s first Spanish graphic novel, Ciudad de payasos, [City of Clowns] produced in collaboration with artist Sheila Alvarado, is now available in the U.S.
