About the Author

Rudolfo Anaya began writing while working as a public school teacher in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Following rejection by many publishers, Bless Me, Ultima was published in 1972 by El Grito, and he then went on to teach English Literature at the University of New Mexico. Following his retirement from the University, he has published the Sonny Baca mystery novels and a number of children's books.

The events in Bless Me, Ultima are drawn from his own experiences. He recorded further experiences in The Heart of Aztlan and Tortuga, which form a trilogy of fictionalized memoirs.
