Summary Notes from the undocumented underground, now in a Spanish-language edition "A memoir from a decent man living in the shadows, evading questions and telling lies, presented here anonymously since to reveal his identity would mean to risk arrest and deportation. An utterly believable close-up picture of one illegal immigrant's life in the United States."--Kirkus Reviews At last available in a Spanish-language edition, Ilegal is the acclaimed memoir of José Ángel N., an undocumented immigrant who built a new life in the United States. Arriving in the US having only finished the ninth grade, N. embraced education, rising from ESL classes to graduate school before becoming a professional translator. Despite a good job, barriers forced him into the shadows. A lack of legal documentation meant he could not easily travel or even buy a beer at the ballpark. Though he lived in a luxury high-rise, he could not fully embrace the American dream. Yet N. persevered. His inspiring success story debunks stereotypes of undocumented immigrants while showing how education can triumph over adversity.
