Hector Tobar is a Los Angeles-born novelist and journalist. He is the author of three books, most recently "The Barbarian Nurseries," which was named a New York Times Notable Book in 2011 and also won the California Book Award Gold Medal for Fiction, a distinction Tobar shares with John Steinbeck, among others. The Los Angeles Times called "The Barbarian Nurseries" “a book of extraordinary scope and extraordinary power.” Tobar has also worked as a reporter and was part of the team that won a Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the 1992 L.A. riots.
