"Bowden was the winner of the 1996 Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction, and a 2010 award from United States Artists. He grew up in Chicago but lived most of his life in Tucson, Arizona. He was known for his writings on the situation at the US–Mexico border and wrote often about the effects of the War on Drugs on the lives of the people in that region. -- He attended the University of Arizona and then the University of Wisconsin, where he obtained his master's degree in American intellectual history; while there he walked out as he was defending his dissertation for his doctorate, annoyed by the questions asked him by the review committee."-wiki.
