Ernesto Quiñonez

Associate Professor


Ernesto Quiñonez's first novel Bodega Dreams, has become a landmark in contemporary literature. It is required reading in many high schools and colleges around the country and in 2004, it was heralded as a "New Immigrant Classic" by the New York Times. He is first and foremost married to the novel, though he has been known to have flings with screenplays and other Hollywood literary floozies.
