All About Books: George Mendoza
Las Cruces artist and Pulitzer-nominated author George Mendoza spoke with Lynn Moorer about his book, Journey of the Spirit Man, his writing process, and how he copes with his blindness. Mendoza describes his book’s protagonist, Michael, as a jerk who embodies a modern-day Job as he suffers great loss, then wanders into a hellish land where he encounters magic realism and faces fantastical challenges. He likens Michael to Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz as he gradually learns key life lessons about the human spirit while leaving it unclear as to whether it was all just a dream.
