CTN PEER MENTOR, TRONCOSO, SET TO PUBLISH NEW BOOK
CTN peer mentor, Sergio’s Troncoso’s new novel, Nobody's Pilgrims, is scheduled for publication in June. It is an adventure about who belongs in the United States and how belonging to someone else is the most important step on this journey.
"The castoffs and castaways of Nobody's Pilgrims hit the road in search of the American Dream, a long shot made longer by the pack of human devils hot on their trail. In this superb novel, Sergio Troncoso gives us a fresh take not only on the great American road trip, but on the American Dream itself in all its glorious and increasingly fragile promise. The propulsive force of this novel, and the destination it ultimately brings us to, left me wanting more, and yet feeling completely satisfied. As only the best novels do."--Ben Fountain, PEN/Hemingway award-winning author of Brief Encounters with Che Guevara
Troncoso’s literary archives will be at the Wittliff Collections exhibit in San Marcos, located on the top floor of the Albert B. Alkek Library at Texas State University.
The exhibit will include manuscript drafts for several of his books, as well as vintage photographs, early writings, and numerous publicity materials. Of special interest are issues of the Pow Wow, the high school newspaper at Ysleta High School that Troncoso edited and received statewide awards for his writing.
