From PEN/Hemingway award winner Brando Skyhorse comes this... memoir in the vein of The glass castle or The tender bar, the true story of a boy's turbulent childhood growing up with five stepfathers and the mother who was determined to give her son everything but the truth. When he was three years old, Brando Kelly Ulloa was abandoned by his Mexican father. His mother, Maria, dreaming of a more exciting life, saw no reason for her son to live his life as a Mexican just because he started out as one. The life of 'Brando Skyhorse,' the American Indian son of an incarcerated political activist, was about to begin.

Loved this book. Made me laugh, but at the same time I felt so bad for Brando. Excellent read. Sometimes had to remind myself that I was reading non-fiction!

Put this book on your shelf next to Jeannette Walls, Jeanette Winterson and mary Karr (The glass castle, why be happy when you could be normal and the liars club )
It's truly amazing that a cocktail of mental illness, religion,and poverty wrapped up in bad parenting could produce such talent in each case.
I wanted to reach right through the pages and rescue the young Brando from the tyrants who 'raised' him.
Yes, he has scars, but he has talent...wow ,such a talent.
