From the back cover: "Only the most assured essayist dares to explore the everyday world we all inhabit yet so rarely truly see, to render seemingly mundane moments into prose that is sweetly sharp and full of wonder. Gary Soto is one such writer. In narratives that are tender or outrageous, delirious with joy or touched by heartbreak, he falls in love, picks up hitchhikers, uses his wits to solve the hunger of stray dogs, and sicovers the writing life."
