Reading Hunger of Memory: The Education of Richard Rodriguez, an autobiography. It's the story of the assimilation of a Mexican immigrant into the Sacramento, CA public schools and the price paid for making it in middle class America. It's about affirmative action, sacrifice, and growing up.
His favorite book--Native Son, by Richard Wright, or, no. Scratch that. The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho.
