Author Luis Alberto Urrea is well-known (and acclaimed) for his novels that revolve around the US-Mexico border.
But his latest release, set to hit shelves tomorrow, departs from that tradition.
Good Night, Irene is set during World War II and takes its inspiration from Urrea's mother's experience as a wartime volunteer.
Book critic Maureen Corrigan has high praise for this tale of two fictional women, Dorothy and Irene, who make their way from the US over to the European Theater and its horrors.
Read Corrigan's review of Good Night, Irene on NPR's website.
