Samenvatting

Rigoberto Gonzalez, author of the critically acclaimed memoir Butterfly Boy: Memories of a Chicano Mariposa , takes a second piercing look at his past through a startling new lens: hunger. The need for sustenance originating in childhood poverty, the adolescent emotional need for solace and comfort, the adult desire for a larger world, another lover, a different body--all are explored by Gonzalez in a series of heartbreaking and poetic vignettes. Each vignette is a defining moment of self-awareness, every moment an important step in a lifelong journey toward clarity, knowledge, and the nourishment that comes in various forms--even the smallest biggest joys help piece together a complex portrait of a gay man of colour who at last defines himself by what he learns, not by what he yearns for.

Recensie(s)

The author of the critically acclaimed memoir Butterfly Boy: Memories of a Chicano Mariposa, takes a second piercing look at his past through a startling new lens: hunger. The need for sustenance originating in childhood poverty, the adolescent emotional need for solace and comfort, the adult desire for a larger world, another lover, a different body- all are explored in a series of heartbreaking and poetic vignettes. An unforgettable portrait of the artist as a young immigrant gay poet. These brief, passionate chapters are filled with rare courage, raw honesty, and the uncommon beauty of a life spent yearning for consolation and hope. Absolutely arresting. - Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic & Desire A haunting book, whose many senses linger long after reading it. - Mary Cappello, author of Awkward: A Detour The compelling story of a life that routinely- necessarily- crosses borders of ethnic, socioeconomic, and sexual identities. - Pablo Miguel Martinez, author of Brazos, Carry Me Immigrant and gay readers may experience release in the book's agonizing familiarity; all readers will find it lusciously evocative. - Publishers Weekly
