About the Author
Born in the Deep South to a lower upper middle class family, Luis Blasini was raised in Los Angeles, California as an ardent fan of the arts. Attending film school and majoring in English Literature at a Southern California University - Luis was influenced by avant-garde film directors and well read in the written works of the Beat Generation. Graduating with honors in both Cinema Direction and Literature, Bored by the plastic fakes of Los Angeles, he relocated to the slums of Tijuana, Mexico where, integrating with the junkies, thieves, male hustlers, and notorious expat homosexuals of Zona Norte, the Author continued to keep detailed journals of his deliciously degenerate lifestyle among the back alleys of the border slums. Going on a 'Kerouac Kick', he left Tijuana and for a decade wandered aimlessly as a self proclaimed 'hobosexual' - traveling and exploring via seedy hotels and homeless shelters the span of the United States, Caribbean, Central and South Americas. All the while, writing about his experiences in a world renowned blog.

I too have met my 'Oscar', the author's object of affection and first love. I could relate to Luis's affection and love for Oscar. I was sad to read that their friendship evolved to a romance of conviniance, and leaving Luis broken hearted and used.
The book was a fast read, it kept me interested and wanting to know more and read more about his adventures in el Centro. I enjoyed the raw descriptions of the events in his life. Paticularly when Luis and Oscar met for the first time.
I like the title, because life can be a PUTA.
