By Victor Villasenor
Standing on the podium, Victor Villaseñor checked out the crowd of educators gathered ahead of him, and his brain flooded with formative years stories of humiliation and abuse by the hands of his academics. He turned enraged. With a pounding middle, he started to converse of those incidents. while he was once via, to his nice disbelief he acquired a status ovation. Many within the viewers couldn't include their very own tears.
So starts off the passionate, touching memoir of Victor Villaseñor. hugely talented and creative as a toddler, Villaseñor coped with an untreated studying incapacity (he was once ultimately clinically determined, on the age of forty-four, with severe dyslexia) and the disappointment of becoming up Latino in an English-only American institution within the Forties. regardless of lecturers who beat him simply because he couldn't communicate English, Villaseñor clung to his dream of 1 day changing into a author. he's now certainly one of the most desirable writers of our time.
