Buffalo Nickel: A Memoir

Item Description
by Floyd Salas

Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly: Salas's fiercely eloquent account of growing up in a family roiled by drug addiction, crime and suicide is a scorching read. He idolized his older brother Al, a professional boxer who popped in and out of reform schools and prisons for pimping, selling bootlegged liquor and petty theft. Their oldest brother, Eddie, a Harvard-educated pharmacist, committed suicide, tormented by his bisexuality and angry at the father who had rejected him. Moving from a Colorado mining town to Denver to a California boomtown and finally to Oakland, Calif., during the Depression, Salas eked out a living selling crucifixes door to door to support his pregnant teenage girlfriend, whom he married. Al, a junkie, pushed him into the ring and tried to lead him into crime as well, but Salas ultimately spurned the brother who let him down, and went on to become a successful novelist. This pounding novelistic autobiography, punctuated by the suicides of several relatives and friends, climaxes with a boxing match between the two brothers, in which they figuratively spill their guts.

COLOR of MY LIVING HEART

Item Description
by Floyd Salas

Product Description The rough and tumble prose and life of Floyd Salas gives body and guts to these poems of love and desperation. Here, the seasoned boxer, street dude, ex-hippy and ex-pachuco bares his heart in a genre all but forgotten by today's skeptic and minimalist poets. What Salas has not dared diplay in his muscular pose works, is here throbing, uncompromising, vulnerable and raw.

Fiction:
Asian American Studies. "There is a disarming immediacy to these stories, most related by a young Filipina emigrant to the States, about a search for what should be accessible-home, family, history-but proves so rarely nowadays to be so. These are moving, finely crafted tales"-Ehud Havazelet. Born and raised in Manila, Villanueva currently teaches writing and literature at Foothill College and Notre Dame de Namur University. Villanueva is also the author of GINSENG AND OTHER TALES FROM MANILA (Calyx Books 1991).
