Arturo Islas (1938–1991) was an author and acclaimed explorer of Mexican-American culture. The publication of his first novel, The Rain God, marked the arrival of a new and unique voice that could speak to both traditions. Born in 1938 in El Paso, Texas, he grew up in the same desert country along the Mexican-American border that is the home of the Angel family of his novels. He earned his undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees from Stanford University, where he continued as a professor of English. He wrote Migrant Souls, the companion novel to The Rain God, a year before he died.
