In this dazzling, picaresque novel, Liborio leaves Mexico to reach 'the promised land.' And in a barrio like any other, in some gringo city, this illegal immigrant tells his story. As he narrates his memories we discover an impoverished childhood and a youth during which he has nothing to lose. In his new home, he finds a job at a bookstore, where he begins to doubt the usefulness of words. He falls in love with a woman so intensely that his fantasies verge on obsession. And, finally, he finds himself on a path that just might save him: he becomes a boxer.
