Summary
  • "Seminal moments, rites of passage, crystalline vignettes--a memoir about growing up brown at the U.S./Mexico border"--
  • Solis's memoir about growing up brown at the U.S./Mexico border. As he examines seminal moments and rites of passage, Solis looks at them as a series of paintings, capturing events survived thanks to the intercession of the Divine. The result is a kind of flash-fiction account of his life: not so much autobiography as an "poetic voice to convey the authentic." -- adapted from introduction
