This is the original Spanish version of Pérez’s celebrated first work, Diary of an Undocumented Immigrant, the story, in his own words, of his odyssey through an endless trail of menial jobs and indignities, told with humor and optimism. Through gritty and unrelenting images, the incisive prose offers the reader an authentic history of the United States, the history of the immigration of the working class. Numerous social scientists have documented this struggle, but they neglect the personal stories of sweat, toil and tears of real people.About the Author:
RAMON "TINAGUIS’ PEREZ is a native of San Pablo Mauiltianguis, a Zapotec village in the Sierra Juárez region of the state of Oaxaca, where his family operated a cabinet-making shop.

He and his wife, Mary live in Xalapa, Veracruz, where Pérez earns his living as an ambulatory photographer. He is the author of two books Diary of an Undocumented Immigrant (Arte Público Press, 1991) and Diary of a Guerilla (Arte Público Press, 1999.)
