Our hero was not one of those Dominican cats everybody's always going on about--he wasn't no home-run hitter or a fly bachatero, not a playboy with a million hots on his jock. And except for one period early in his life, dude never had much luck with the females (how very un-Dominican of him). He was seven then.
I'm not very far into this one, maybe forty pages or so, but I'm smiling and laughing with every page turn. The tone and approach of this novel is a change-up from what I normally read and I'm really enjoying it. I know I shouldn't snicker at the generalizations tossed around in this book, but I can't help it.
