Book Nook: House Divided, by Raul Ramos y Sanchez
This second novel in a futuristic trilogy imagines an America where immigration reform has taken a dangerous turn. In "House Divided" the Latino residents of America have been confined to quarantine zones and a civil war is being waged between the US military and some underground guerilla groups who are fighting on behalf of various constituencies within the Latino community.
In this interview the author discussed how he imagined this disturbing scenario and how he has made the transition from advertising executive to novelist.
