Format: Paperback
Hoyt Street us as disarming a book as its author is. This is one of the only narratives of what life was really like for Chicanos in Los Angeles. It's humor captures us as well as the authenticity of its story, but more, we dive deep into the experience because the narraive is so rich and inviting. A must read for anyone.
