Rudy Ruiz – Writing culture and heritage authentically

This week we chat to Rudy Ruiz, about his new novel, ‘The Resurrection of Fulgencio Ramirez’. Rudy has been a finalist for the International Latino Book Awards, and has written extensively about the Mexican/ US border. The new book weaves that social activism into a novel, telling the story of a man seeking redemption and the American Dream in the face of a mystical family curse. We talk about where the idea came from, how Mexican songs helped shaped the story, and why culture and heritage plays such a big role in his writing. You can support the show at
