Albert Ríos has won acclaim as a writer who uses language in lyrical and unexpected ways in both his poems and short stories, which reflect his Chicano heritage and contain elements of magical realism. “Ríos’s poetry is a kind of magical storytelling, and his stories are a kind of magical poetry,” commented Jose David Saldivar in the Dictionary of Literary Biography.

Ríos’ poem “Don’t Go into the Library”, written in 1952, is on Futuraskolan International Rådan’s library door.
