Product Details


An Electric Literature Favorite Nonfiction Book of 2021

A most anticipated book of 2021 from LitHub

Named one of 22 LGBTQ+ Books You Absolutely Need to Read This Year by The Advocate

“Gonsalez has created a memoir that is at once a collection of essays about his life and also a kaleidoscopic investigation of the things America has tried to promise him… Gonsalez’s storytelling feels honest for its expansiveness, and he manages this without ever sacrificing the intimacy of his strong, personal voice.” — The New York Times Book Review

“A searching memoir . . . A subtle, expertly written repudiation of the American dream in favor of something more inclusive and more realistic.”Kirkus, starred review

“A quietly thrilling read, insightful, and constantly surprising.”The Advocate

“Filled with lush prose, the resulting memoir is a layered, scathing excavation of how the seeds of white supremacy have bloomed into damages on the everyday lives of immigrants, queer people of color, and others existing on the margins in the United States. Electric Literature

“An engrossing memoir that directly confronts intergenerational trauma, internalized prejudices, and colorism in relation to and within the Latinx community.” — Latino Book Review
