Through correspondence with the author, a Crypto- Jewish Catholic priest who provides protection to Jews living as Catholics in Latin America reveals the struggles with his hidden self and the burden of secrecy in his true identity.
To grow up as a Mexican-American Methodist in a small town in south central Texas in the 1940s and 1950s was to be a minority within a minority. This memoir is the story of a man who became bilingual, bicultural, and successful, but it is also a tribute to the traditions in which he grew up.
