La Carreta Made a U-Turn was the first book published by Arte Público Press. Its impact was so great that almost immediately upon publication it was the subject of a forty-page article in the respected journal Daedalus. Over the years, it has also been the subject of numerous reviews and literary studies, and Tato Laviera has become almost synonymous with Nuyorican/Hispanic and bilingual literature. Laviera has produced three other successful books of poems, all published by Arte Público Press. Since 1979, La Carreta Made a U-Turn is the most popular and most widely read book of poetry by a U.S. Hispanic Author.
