Border native Rudy Ruiz celebrates the culture, music and legends of the Texas-Mexico border in his new novel, The Resurrection of Fulgencio Ramirez. A work of magical realism, the story follows an ambitious and talented but cursed son of immigrants as he strives to succeed in America in the 1950s and 80s, break a mystical family curse, and win back his childhood love after their doomed youthful romance. Through enchanting language and meditations about the porous nature of borders – cultural, geographic, and otherworldly – The Resurrection of Fulgencio Ramirez offers a vision of how the past has divided us and how the future could unite us.

Author Rudy Ruiz will join the discussion.
