Julia Alvarez was born on March 27, 1950, in New York City. The theme of being caught between two cultures can be found throughout Alvarez's work. She explored this in her first novel, How the García Girls Lost Their Accents (1991). Her reading audience continued to grow with her second novel, In the Time of Butterflies, published in 1994. Several more acclaimed works of fiction have followed.
