Synopsis

Gary Soto by Dennis Abrams

Growing up poor in the barrios of Fresno, California, Gary Soto found it nearly impossible to imagine a better life for himself. Yet this child of farm workers was able to escape his life of poverty and despair to become a popular and versatile author. His work, ranging from poetry, fiction, and autobiographical essays for adults to novels, short stories, poetry, and picture books for young readers, explores what it is like to grow up as a Mexican American in the United States. Gary Soto is the inspirational biography of a critically acclaimed writer who was able to transcend his humble beginnings thanks to his ability to touch others with his remarkable literary offerings.
