9781440477614: Latino Jesse

This book is about an urban chicano, who grows up beneath the shadow of the sprawling steel mill complex of northwestern Indiana. Jesse is a Mexican-American who like many Mexican-Americans discovers he is neither Mexican nor American. This book is about that challenge. Jesse leaves home to do something no one he knows has ever done. He goes to college. He studies in Europe. To help cope with his isolation his imagination discovers worlds unknown. He returns home a very different person. A person who has played with other realities. He returns home to "test" the new Jesse in the old environment. The tests proves difficult. The results are complex. The year is 1970.

About the Author:

Gabriel A. Fraire was born in East Chicago, Indiana, in the part of town known as "The Harbor." It was the Mexican barrio that was adjacent to the steel mills. Fraire grew up urban, ethnic and working class. All his family and friends were steel workers. Fraire received several scholarships and was the first person in all his extended family to attend college. In 1975 with his wife, Karen, Fraire moved to California where he worked as a journalist for ten years. In 1992 his brother John, who lived in New York City, approached him about collaborating on a play. In 1994 the Castillo Theatre Company produced the Fraire brother's first play, Who Will Dance With Pancho Villa. In 1996 their second play Cesar Died Today was produced by New Latino Visions theater company. In 2003, the Fraire brothers collaborated to write a short film Stories of the Season that was produced as part of the Kalamazoo Valley Museum Mexican American History Planetarium Presentation, in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Fraire also has had three books published: Windsor the Birth of a City a non-fiction book about how unincorporated areas become cities in California, and I Remember Healdsburg, a collection of oral histories, and Daddy I Need to Go Potty, a humorous book about parenthood. Latino Jesse was Fraire's first book and written in 1972-73
