Acclaimed Latino author Daniel Chacon talks about his most recent work, Hotel Juarez, a portrait of a city written in its crime-ridden heyday. He talks about how his own experiences in that city harkened back to his youth in Fresno, and also touches on one of his greatest influences, José Antonio Burciaga.
