Antonio’s Gun and Delfino’s Dream

UNM's Provost chose Antonio’s Gun and Delfino’s Dream by acclaimed Los Angeles Times journalist Sam Quinones as this summer's inaugural work for the Lobo Reading Experience, a summer reading program for UNM Freshmen. So, who read this book over the summer? What did you think about it? What did you think was most successful about the book? Least successful? Was it a good selection for UNM students? Why or why not?

I haven't read this yet, but give me a couple of weeks.

I read this book over the summer and surprisingly enough I actually enjoyed it. Though most of the information was not all that new to me, the stories in this book were an interesting way to reexamine some of the ideas that I had previously not associated with any person in particular, but instead with the population in general. The relearning gave me a new perspective and greater appreciation of what the immigrants often go thorough to get here and do once they get here.
