9788420464244: En Suelo Firme = A Place to Stand (Spanish Edition)

The power of the written word is revealed in this wrenching memoir of the author’s troubled youth and the five-year jail sentence that turned him around. Having been raised without a strong role model, in and out of trouble, he transforms his life and wants "to give voice to the voiceless and hope to the hopeless, of which I am one." Jimmy Santiago Baca.

Description in spanish: Jimmy Santiago Baca escribe su autobiografía, en la que narra el proceso que le ha llevado a convertirse en uno de los más aclamados poetas norteamericanos. Pero su formación no ha tenido lugar en aulas de literatura ni ambientes de sofisticada intelectualidad.

A los veintiún años, Jimmy era un chicano analfabeto que se enfrentaba a cinco años de prisión mayor por venta de drogas. Al tiempo que intenta sobrevivir en un lugar donde la única ley es la violencia y la única defensa ser temido, Baca descubre la palabra y queda fascinado por su poder, que termina por convertirle en un hombre nuevo. Desde el encierro describe su infancia en la pobreza, el orfanato y el correccional, su precoz toma de contacto con las drogas y el alcohol, amores y amistad, desengaños y traiciones.

Un libro impresionante que relata una trayectoria personal asombrosa. Tan apasionante en las descripciones salvajes de las situaciones límite que viven los presos, como en el lirismo de su prosa y sus poemas, esta novela se ha convertido ya en una obra imprescindible.
