FROM THIS EPISODE

The border between poetry and fiction is dismantled when the poet/author is Luis Alberto Urrea. He finds a border and builds a bridge. Urrea's two most recent books, one of poetry -- The Tijuana Book of the Dead (Soft Skull Press) -- and one of short stories -- The Water Museum (Little, Brown and Company) -- work together to bridge the gap between the logical coherence of fiction and the surrealism of poetry. He deconstructs the border that acts as a brutal metaphor for the separation of people.

Read an excerpt from The Water Museum.
