Description

This is a book of fragments, stories of moments in the lives of people along the Mexican border.

"Offers a compelling and unprecedented look at what life is like for those refugees living on the Mexican side of the border--a world that is only some twenty miles from San Diego, but that few have ever seen. Urrea gives us a compassionate and candid account of his work as a member and 'official translator' of a crew of relief workers that provided aid to the many refugees hidden just behind the flashy tourist spots of Tijuana. His account of the struggle of these people to survive amid abject poverty, unsanitary living conditions, and the legal and political chaos that reign in the Mexican borderlands explains without a doubt the reason so many are forced to make the dangerous and illegal journey 'across the wire' into the United States."--Provided by publisher
