    Either a bracingly honest series of essays by one of our greatest living authors, or an ingenious literary experiment, a novel in disguise.

    Sergio's personal essays grip the reader through simple yet eloquent prose and philosophical issues resulting from everyday circumstances. I was engaged throughout, finishing it in a mere two days. Sergio addresses issues of education, Mexican-Americans, and the purpose of story-telling with passion and grace. I recommend it for anyone attempting to find meaning in the everyday, teaching students, or looking to find a book that will break your heart simply because you have finished it.Side-note: [...]

    This book of short essays is perfect for when you want a story you can connect with but only have a few minutes to yourself. In each essay the author reflects on the borders in his own life, which could stand for the borders in any of our lives: friends and family; work and school; sickness, love, and loss. They are essays you can return to again and again, in any of life's circumstances.
