Description


En este ultimo libro de su premiada serie de memorias, Francisco Jiménez deja todo atrás en California--una familia cariñosa, una novia devota, y la cultura que lo formó--para asistir a la Universidad de Columbia en Nueva York. Rara, honesta y auténtica de la experiencia de los latinos en los Estados Unidos de América, Pasos firmes ahora esta disponible en Español.

In this final book in his award-winning series of memoirs, Francisco Jiménez leaves everything behind in California--his loving family, devoted girlfriend, and the culture that raised him--to attend Columbia University. Singular, honest, and an authentic portrayal of the Latinx experience in the USA, Pasos firmes is now available in Spanish.

Llevando consigo recuerdos sobre años de pobreza y prejuicios sufridos, Francisco Jiménez entra en un mundo culturalmente diferente al suyo, uno que le hace cuestionarlo todo. ¿Podrá sobresalir entre sus compañeros de la Ivy League? ¿Cómo apoyará a su familia en casa, y a su padre en México, que está demasiado enfermo para trabajar?

Esta serie autobiográfica, honesta y conmovedora, ha encontrado un gran número ascendente de lectores. La obra de Jiménez cobra vida con detalles acerca del cariño y la resistencia de la familia y la búsqueda de la identidad contra todo pronóstico aparentemente imposible.
