Half man, half woman, half Mexican, half Texan, Arcadio?s tale is extraordinary. Mixing rural Texas vernacular with Spanish and street slang, it tells the story of deserted child sold to a brothel, who becomes a sideshow freak in a travelling circus, a youth relentlessly searching for his family. Goyen?s last book, it is a moving finale to his life and work.
