WOW! (David Perez) (Mar 2011)
It's coming!

March 2011
11B Press

Advance Praise:

"David Pérez's amazing memoirito brings a refreshing humanity to the Latino experience. Yet his coming-of-age story is universal in scope: lovely, funny, rich and evocative."
- Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez, New York Times bestselling author

"With his unsparing eye for detail and dialogue, and his big-hearted approach to even the toughest circumstances, Pérez proves that you can, indeed, go home again. And it’s even better the second time around. Kudos!"
 - Cristina Garcia, author of The Lady Matador’s Hotel

"Pérez weaves a deep, clear portrait of a time and place, blasting away negative stereotypes along the way. An important work from a highly skilled and original artist."
- Bruce McIntosh, Artistic Director, Metta Theatre, Taos, NM

Hello everyone,

My book is set to launch! It's been a great journey writing it, and having the cover and illustrations drawn by my brother George, the acclaimed comic book artist, has been an added blessing.

11B Press is a new publisher and Wow! is their first book. Yet another blessing.

I'll be in New York from March 15 - April 13 and have some readings in the works. I'll keep you all posted. Besides the East Coast this spring (mostly in NY), I'd like to do the Southwest in the summer, and the West Coast in the fall.

If you have contacts with a venue that might be interested in a reading/signing, please let me know. I also like the idea of doing writer's salons in people's homes, where I can read from Wow! and then have a lively and fun discussion.

Information about Wow! - including excerpts and audio clips - can be found on my website (click here, or on above link). When the book is ready to be ordered, you'll be the first to know.

Hasta luego!
