Summary
Jorgito lives in San Francisco's Mission District, but has not forgotten his native El Salvador. His memories of the volcanoes, his grandmother's stories, and the cornmeal "pupusas" form a patchwork of dreams that becomes a movie in his pillow
Summary
Poems in Spanish and English describe the author's boyhood as a refugee from rural El Salvador living in San Francisco, where he had to cope with a new language, a new culture, and a very different way of life
