Steve EricksonWhile Tobar is an impressive reporter -- the former national Latino affairs correspondent for The Los Angeles Times, he is now the paper's Buenos Aires bureau chief -- Translation Nation is often most compelling when it's telling his own story, which begins in Los Angeles, ''my tierra,'' he calls it, ''my homeland.'' Los Angeles -- ''the place to which I will always return'' -- is the nerve center for Tobar's quest. For Latinos, it's the ultimate American city, a city of immigrants in a country of them, trafficking in identity, reinvention and the opportunity for people to recast themselves in the image of their hopes.
