Gustavo Pulls Up to Haruki Murakami, Stuart Woods
Ponder this: Just behind world-famous authors Haruki Murakami and Stuart Woods and ahead of nonfiction giants Greg Palast and John Stossel is OC Weekly's own Gustavo Arellano.
Yesterday, Scribner published Gustavo's Ask a Mexican, and a mere day later, Amazon.com is ranking the book No. 81 in nationwide sales for new releases.
The book has grabbed national and international attention. How do I know? Beacuse Gustavo's voice is, well, loud—he literally crawls under his desk to do phone interviews in order to muffle the noise. He's been there all day talking to talk-show hosts and reporters from such outposts as KABC and the BBC London.
You can hear Gustavo on Thursday, May 3, when he'll will make a 7 p.m. appearance at historic Libreria Martinez bookstore, 1110 N. Main St., Santa Ana, (714) 973-7900.
And make sure to see tomorrow's OC Weekly, in which Gustavo details his life as "The Mexican."
