There are times when I feel like a stranger in this country. I am not complaining and it's not for lack of opportunity. But it is something of a disappointment. I never would have imagined that after having spent 35 years in the United States I would still be a stranger to so many. But that's how it is. Jorge Ramos, an Emmy award-winning journalist, Univision's longtime anchorman and widely considered the "voice of the voiceless" within the Latino community, was forcefully removed from an Iowa press conference in 2015 by then-candidate Donald Trump after trying to ask about his plans on immigration. In this personal manifesto, Ramos sets out to examine what it means to be a Latino immigrant, or just an immigrant, in present-day America. With current research and statistics, a journalist nose for a story, and his own personal experience, Ramos shows us the changing face of America while trying to find an explanation for why he, and millions of others, still feel like strangers in this country. "It is precisely this pattern of confrontation...that has won Ramos the trust of so many Hispanics. They know that in many countries south of the United States, direct questions can provoke not simply a loss of access but also a loss of life." - Marcela Valdes, The New York Times 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jorge Ramos, Ozzie Rodriguez. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/006000/bk_rand_006000_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Hay veces en que me siento como un extraño en el país donde he pasado más de la mitad de mi vida. No es por falta de oportunidades, ni una queja. Es, más bien, una especie de desilusión. Jamás me imaginé que después de 35 años en Estados Unidos iba a seguir siendo un stranger para muchos. Pero eso soy. Jorge Ramos, periodista galardonado con premios Emmy, reconocido presentador del Noticiero Univisión y considerado "la voz de los sin voz" de la comunidad latina, fue expulsado de una rueda de prensa del candidato presidencial Donald Trump en Iowa en el año 2015 tras cuestionar sus planes sobre inmigración. En este manifiesto personal, Ramos explora qué significa ser un inmigrante latino, o simplemente un inmigrante, en los Estados Unidos de nuestros días. Mediante datos y estadísticas, su olfato para encontrar historias y su propia memoria personal, Ramos nos muestra el rostro cambiante de America y explora las razones por las que él, y muchos otros millones de inmigrantes, aún se sienten como strangers en este país. "Es precisamente su estilo de confrontación...el que le ha ganado a Ramos la confianza de tantos hispanos. Ellos saben que en muchos países al sur de Estados Unidos las preguntas directas pueden significar, no solo perder el acceso, sino también perder la vida". (Marcela Valdes, The New York Times) Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish. 1. Spanish. Jorge Ramos, Harold Leal. http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/033677/bk_adbl_033677_sample.mp3.

Introducing Jonathan Gold; he was humorous, happy-go-lucky, super-athletic, unusually handsome and warm-hearted; he naively thought he had it made, he thought everything was pulling together for his college future, going his way; soon to be decorated high school Sports Grad, class of 1982, those fabulous football scholarships kept coming in for the asking, all at his taking lining up, maybe even a great job at the Gym/Dojo he belonged to; it seemed ridiculous; how could something like this actually happen to him? He, with all his martial arts trophy training and unheard of glorified health, how could he be shockingly shanghaied, subdued and shafted from his own bedroom in the middle of the night without being able to defend himself? Well, it sure did happen, and to him. And then, waking up in a floppy fog, to see a husky, hulking, hairy kidnapper Bruce and his lovely latino-looking lady doctor Sheila, his cohort asking him such odd nonsensical personal questions? Was it just some haphazard undercover mix-up, a big, glaring mistake? It gets even stranger for him when he winds up once more waking up after a harrowing, burning ring caper to see the most gorgeous gal, Selene, staring down at him, one with such beautiful violet-hued eyes and platinum hair, just as he had? Was it just a dream? Yet what they were being told about themselves by these mysterious abductors made it even more bizarre- and it takes an even more unbelievable turn when they are forced to take a very far, far away trip- and Jon wakes up even again somewhere else… with a funky piece of feather-light, haloed jewelry on his neck and some tunes and lyrics blaring that begins to change his entire life forever…

Named one of Kirkus Reviews Best Nonfiction Books of 2014 One of NBC News's 10 Best Latino Books of 2014 'A West Coast version of Augusten Burroughs's Running With Scissors...A funny, shocking, generous-hearted book” (Entertainment Weekly) about a boy, his five stepfathers, and the mother who was determined to give her son everything but the truth. When he was three years old, Brando Kelly Ulloa was abandoned by his immigrant father. His mother, Maria, dreaming of a more exciting life, saw no reason for her son to live as a Mexican American just because he was born one. With the help of Maria's ruthless imagination and a hastily penned jailhouse correspondence, the life of 'Brando Skyhorse,” the Native American son of an incarcerated political activist, was about to begin. Through a series of letters to Paul Skyhorse Johnson, a stranger in prison for armed robbery, Maria reinvents herself and her young son as American Indians in the colorful Mexican-American neighborhood of Echo Park, California, where Brando and his mother live with his acerbic grandmother and a rotating cast of surrogate fathers. It will be thirty years before Brando begins to untangle the truth, when a surprise discovery leads him to his biological father at last. From this PEN/Hemingway Award-winning novelist comes an extraordinary literary memoir capturing a mother-son story unlike any other and a boy's single-minded search for a father, wherever he can find one.
