This audiobook succeeds because the author's performance is as powerful and emotionally driven as the story she tells. Guerrero's father, Marco Antonio, a Mexican immigrant, was an enigmatic presence. At times a genius, at times unstable, he was an erratic and elusive person whose brilliance was interrupted by numerous demons, including alcohol, drugs, and mental illness. Through it all, Guerrero never lost hope that she would discover why her father was so plagued. Guerrero superbly tells the story of her journey to understand her father, and in the process she crosses borders both real and imaginary. While it takes a chapter or two to adjust to her delivery, the result is captivating and feels like you are on the same compelling quest as the author.
