Hunger of Memoryis the story of Mexican-American Richard Rodriguez, who begins his schooling in Sacramento, California, knowing just 50 words of English, and concludes his university studies in the stately quiet of the reading room of the British Museum. Here is the poignant journey of a "minority student" who pays the cost of his social assimilation and academic success with a painful alienation from his past, his parents, his culture and so describes the high price of "making it" in middle-class America. Provocative in its positions on affirmative action and bilingual education,Hunger of Memoryis a powerful political statement, a profound study of the importance of language ... and the moving, intimate portrait of a boy struggling to become a man.
