Domingo Martinez (Spring/Summer 2011) has been named a National Book Award Finalist! He has recently received much well-deserved attention, including a feature on NPR, a column in the National Review of Books, and a bit of buzz at the literary water-cooler. As Caitlin Ried wrote in her New Pages Review of Epiphany Spring/Summer 2011, "Martinez delivers a lyrical and unblinking account of family life in the border town of Brownsville, Texas. The characters in Martinez's memoir are brutal as often as they are lovable." Domingo Martinez found his first publication in Epiphany.
