In “WOW 2: The Memoirito Continues,” David is in high school, a top student and athlete. But as the tumultuous 70’s set in, David is pulled by partying and getting high, until a brush with the law and pigeons in his South Bronx neighborhood forces him to re-think his priorities. David writes his first short story, learns about Marxism via the economics of his shirt, graduates, and ends up becoming a young father, a detour that leads him to join the U.S. Navy. Ten months later, David is back in New York, where he becomes a radical political activist, and is schooled in the “university” known as the mailroom. The book ends with David and his friends back in the South Bronx, sharing lives linked by culture, neighborhood, work, family, and a commitment to revolutionary change.

Full of the author’s trademark use of humor and sharp dialogue, WOW 2 is another addition to the multilayered Latino experience, a book that entertains, educates, and enlightens, with timely lessons about what “being smart” really means.

    Excerpt from WOW 2:

    The letter from the Catholic High School Entrance Exam handed me another slice of humble pie. My first choice, Cardinal Spellman, considered the top academic Catholic high school in New York City, rejected me. Blessedly, Cardinal Hayes, my second choice, said yes. I sighed in relief and forced myself to be pleased. George, my year-older brother attended Hayes and liked it.

    "It's a good school," George said after I told him the news. "The teachers aren't crazy, but they push you. They got a great athletic department. Not that I would notice."

    We laughed. George wasn't big on sports, being self-admittedly somewhat of a klutz. Stickball, roller-skating, it didn't matter. He tried them, became frustrated and gave up. Despite being six inches taller and twenty pounds heavier than me, George wasn't athletic at all; his passion came from writing and drawing comic books, including creating his own characters and storylines.
