Novelist Rolando Hinojosa-Smith wins the Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Book Critics Circle. The Houston Chronicle tells us that this is “a big deal” because the “award goes to an individual or institution that has made a significant and lasting contribution to American letters.”
Hinojosa-Smith’s books are published by Houston-based Arte Público Press. Their site lists the following books in their catalog:
- “The Useless Servant,” published September 1, 1993
- “The Rolando Hinojosa Reader: Essays Historical and Critical,” published April 30, 1985
- “Becky and Her Friends,” published April 30, 1989
