Hunger of Memory
The Education of Richard Rodriguez : An AutobiographyPaperback - 2004
"Richard Rodriguez, the son of Mexican immigrant parents, began his schooling in Sacramento, California, knowing just fifty words of English, and concluded his university studies in the lonely grandeur of the British Museum. Hunger for Memory is the poignant journey of a scholarship boy whose awkward progress reveals the central mysteries of education, its costs--painful alienation from his working-class past--and its great gains, Rodriguez's achievement of a middle-class voice."--P.  of cover.
