Crazy Loco Love by Victor Villaseor

Growing up on his parents ranch in North San Diego County, Victor Villasenors teenage years were marked by a painful quest to find a place for himself in a world he did not fit into. The son of a self-made man, Victor is different from his peers because of his Mexican heritage, and he experiences both subtle and outright discrimination because of this. He also questions the tenets of his Catholic faith and the restrictions it places on his own developing spirituality and sexuality. Victors search for identity takes him to his familys roots in Mexico, where he learns that Mexicans are intelligent and successful; they are architects, professors, and artists. Most importantly, he meets an older woman who cultivates in him a deeper understanding of his own intellectual capacity and helps him see the world - and his place in it - in a whole new way. Through this often humorous, picaresque tale, Villasenor undermines the macho stereotype so often associated with Latinos, while exposing the tender vulnerability and naivete of a young man grappling with his own sexuality and the roles foisted on him by Church and society. Victors youthful misadventures elicit sympathy, laughter, and tears as he attempts to divine the mysteries of the opposite sex in this memoir of the writer during his formative years.--BOOK JACKET.
