The simple elegance of Fernando Romero's writing makes the haunting story of his life as a poor, abused and desperately searching young boy, and his triumph as a man of accomplishment, all that more powerful.
It is at times funny, raw, pathetic, joyous. He was not a perfect kid and doesn't present himself as a perfect man. But he is a hero, a solid and good guy, someone to have a drink with, to be friends with, someone for those of us who do not know him personally to admire and respect.
His story will teach you, will inspire you, will move you. So very glad I read this book.
