May 9, 2014

Cold Deck is the latest novel by Nevada-based writer H. Lee Barnes. Set in Las Vegas, it chronicles the life of a single father, struggling to raise his children and keep his life from spiraling out of control in "Sin City". In KNAU's latest Southwest Book Review, Mary Sojourner says Cold Deck is poignant, gritty and kept her reading well into the night.

Writer Sergio Troncoso graduated from Harvard, studied philosophy at Yale, and was a Fulbright Scholar in Mexico.  But he started in a Texas barrio.  In his latest novel, he tells the story of upward mobility in a family much like his own.
