Crossing Borders Unit Test Essay Format

“Troncoso’s essays are lucid, philosophical, and erudite without being condescending to the reader. Crossing Borders signals a shift in writing about what it means to be Chicano and a writer in the early 21st century.” ---The Packinghouse Review

"A champion for the rights of immigrants who have come to this country for a better, more prosperous life.” ---NewPages.com

"Troncoso is at his best when he gets personal. In an unusually honest essay, he talks about an intense argument with his father....Troncoso is an elegant writer whose work will make readers grateful that he writes his life down." –The Hispanic Reader

"Touching and intelligent, this book shows what it's like growing up an intellectual on the border of the US and Mexico. It's often painful, often funny, but always precise in expressing how rich and challenging life can be, how sometimes moving away from home can bring you even closer to your family and heritage." --Daniel Chacon, author of And the shadows took him and Unending Rooms

"Sergio Troncoso takes us on his journey from El Paso to New York, from child to husband, and student to father....and it is worth our while to witness this journey from native son to the bloody birth of a public intellectual." ---Kathleen Alcala, author of "The Desert Remembers My Name"

“Troncoso is a complicated man trying to understand a complicated world. In his quest for understanding, he eloquently shares lessons learned in 16 provocative essays. These very personal essays cross several borders: cultural, historical, and self-imposed….We owe it to ourselves to read, savor and read them again.” --The El Paso Times

"An engrossing and revealing peek behind the curtain of one writer's creative process, development and struggles." --The El Paso Times

"Troncoso’s book is a piece of artwork and a piece of heritage that everyone, not just Latinos, should take the time to read." ---Portland Book Review
