Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Javier Zamora

Biography & Memoir • 17.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Javier Zamora narrates his memoir with a singular power. His account of his childhood migration from El Salvador to the U.S. provides listeners the truly heartbreaking first-person experiences of a child in the midst of a life-or-death struggle. In 1999, Zamora traveled thousands of miles, with a group of strangers, through the towns and deserts of Central America and Mexico. His parents, already in the U.S., had no ability to contact him directly during his journey. Zamora recounts his experiences of assuming a Mexican identity and facing multiple confrontations with law enforcement. He misses his parents and longs to hear their voice. Zamora conveys this heartrending listening experience with quiet, beautiful humanity. S.P.C.
