From the Publisher:
The author of Thirteen Senses describes his struggles with cultural discrimination and an untreated learning disability, recounting his victimization as a non-English-speaking Latino in an American school system and his eventual rise to an award-winning writer.
Annotation:
The Mexican-American writer Victor Villaseor writes about his childhood and youth, growing up in the 1940s on a ranch in Southern California. Afflicted with dyslexia, he also--despite his family's relative wealth--endured discrimination and cruelty as a Latino in a white world. He ended his school days with a deep reservoir of anger at the teachers who allowed him to suffer, but also with the passionate desire to become a writer, and to use with artistry the language he was sometimes beaten for not knowing.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"His retelling of sometimes humorous, sometimes chilling childhood experiences is at once painful and gratifying. He imaginatively and poetically remembers his tumultuous childhood with the simplicity of a child and the introspection of a sage." 07/07/2004
