Born to a Mexican/Yaqui Indian mother, and Mexican/Anglo father, the author shares life-altering events and the people that shaped his mixed-race ´´American” experience. For as long as he can remember, identity by choice or force has wrought conflict and contradictions. Who is he? What is he? Where did he come from? Where does he belong? Where is he going? His surname implies he’s white, but his brown skin begs to differ. Is he Mexican? His mother’s family tree most certainly is, but his Father’s Celtic and Iberian branch bears his Anglo surname. Is he more culturally white European than ethnically Latino? Is he a Native American, rooted in his beloved Yaqui abuela? To which ethnic tribe does he belong? The author asks listeners to think of this book as explanatory theater; as a three-act play providing racial and cultural context, commentary, and value to the social paradigms we all share, but often fail to recognize in ourselves and one another. His essays testify, an authentic telling of naivety, consequence, rebellion, and evolutionary awareness. And of life discovered, marinated in an introspective stew of love, fear, indulgence, compassion, humility, and redemption. He intends to affirm and provoke, and open our ears to a world seen through an independent and differently colored lens. Consider his observations a handshake between friends. Let your guard down. Relax in a comfortable chair, have a glass of wine, and listen. He won’t bite. Well, maybe a little. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ryan Whiting.
