A true American story told by a self-described NewyoRican. It begins on the colorful island of Puerto Rico and goes on to New York City, where his story of assimilation into American life begins. "Arriving at the Isla Verde Airport in Puerto Rico, from New York was like going from a black and white' movie to a Technicolor movie." "Late night New York City joy rides in 'borrowed' cars seemed fun to a young boy." "Rail tracks above the Harlem night provided enough darkness for any crime to take place ... He intended to rob me." "The clatter and squeal of metal wheels on subway tracks were among instruments on the swaying subway cars, concocting one time musical pieces in my head." To trace a family's history, bringing events, places, and facts to light, would be interesting enough. Yet, Jose Bello's accounting, not only describes his reasoning of the twists and turns taken, but paints a tinctorial picture of emotions suffered and emotions savored in the course of human lives.
