Justin Torres is an American novelist from New York. Torres' father is Puerto Rican and his mother is Italian and Irish. He is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop. Torres is a young author best known for his first book, We The Animals. I can honestly say this book is one of the BEST books I've ever read. I highly recommend it. It's beautiful, provokes emotion, and I genuinely like it enough to call it a brilliant masterpiece. Thought I should add him on TLLOH as I'm looking forward to reading more of his work.
