Cultural Writing. Latino/Latina Studies. African American Studies. This book marks the first publication of a living author in Arte PAAblico's landmark Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage series. Growing up in Ygor City (now Tampa) in the early twentieth century, the young Evelio Grillo experienced the complexities of life in a horse-and-buggy society demarcated by both racial and linguistic lines. Grillo recaptures in prose this unique world that slowly faded during the Depression. An insightful and inspiring work - U.S. Representative Barbara Lee.
"Grillo's narrative is full of details that captivate; he is a very accomplished storyteller."
