About Richard Parks III
Richard Parks III, born Richard Hill Parks III in Los Angeles in 1982, has done most of his writing under the byline Richard Parks. He has been mistaken for other Richard Parkses — the retired Welsh rugby star turned endurance athlete, the fantasy writer from Mississippi, and the upstate NY-based literary agent — as well as Richard Hill Parks, his own grandfather and namesake, a psychiatrist who facilitated the liberation of concentration camps in WWII and helped integrate hospitals in the segregated South. You can call him Trip. Nobody ever has.

In a town overrun with taco trucks, Wes Avila's Guerrilla Tacos has managed to win almost every accolade there is, from being crowned Best Taco Truck by LA Weekly to being called one of the best things to eat in Los Angeles by legendary food critic Jonathan Gold. Avila's approach stands out in a crowded field because it's unique: the 50 base recipes in this book are grounded in authenticity but never tied down to tradition. Wes uses ingredients like kurobata sausage and sea urchin, but his bestselling taco is made from the humble sweet potato. From basic building blocks to how to balance flavor and texture, with comic-inspired illustrations and stories throughout, Guerrilla Tacos is the final word on tacos from the streets of L.A.
