A Fiction Book Talk & Signing
How does a Mexican-American, the son of immigrants, a child of the border, la frontera, leave home and move to the heart of gringo America? How does he adapt to New York City? How does he make peace with a stern old-fashioned father? Sergio Troncoso, award-winning author of multiple books including The Last Tortilla and Other Stories and The Nature of Truth, will discuss and sign A Peculiar Kind of Immigrant's Son ($16.95 Cinco Puntos Press).
With echoes of Dreiser's American Tragedy and Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, Troncoso tells his luminous stories through the lens of an exile adrift in the 21st century, his characters suffering from the loss of culture and language, the loss of roots and home as they adapt to the glittering promises of new worlds which ultimately seem so empty.
