From the Publisher
Editors Note The author 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 Villaseñor 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.
