A Mexican-American teenager comes to terms with his melting- pot heritage-in a labored and predictable picaresque tale from the author of The Dark Side of the Dream (1995). Having turned 18 and graduated from high school in 1955, Valent°n Cooper is eager to break out of Big Bend, the West Texas whistle stop where he grew up. A film buff who hopes to make some kind of a living in Hollywood, he feels hemmed in by his loving but demanding mother Guadalupe (who owns a roadside cafe frequented by local farmers and long-haul truckers) and a pregnant Anglo girlfriend named Bonnie Gortner.
Alejandro Grattan-Dominguez was born in El Paso, Texas, the old-est son of an Irish father and a Mexican mother. I also have to say that even the preface itself made my mind whirl. I wish every American could read it to understand the Mexico-U. After flunking out of college twice, he finally made good at Texas A& M, before going on to SMU, (a transfer he likens as going from a concentration camp to a luxury resort) where he earned a BA in English Litera-ture. how we welcomed them during our many wars to replace the missing manpower and then discarded them when we no longer needed them.
