Nazaré wins New Mexico-Arizona Book Award

Nazaré: a novel has won the New Mexico-Arizona Book Award for Literary Fiction. It was a joint winner alongside Brandon Hobson’s superb The Removed. Back in 2021, I invited Brandon to speak at Southwest Word Fiesta; he was brilliant.

Among the other winners was First & Wildest: The Gila Wilderness at 100 (Torrey House Press), an anthology to which I contributed a short piece. This book contains the work of many friends and outstanding writers such as Sharman Apt Russell, Philip Connors, and Eve West Bessier.

One of the finalists in the poetry category was Jack Crocker’s The Algorithm of I, a powerful collection published by Mimbres Press of Western New Mexico University.
