Line Becomes A River
- Our Price:
Raised by the daughter of a Mexican immigrant, Cantú studied international relations at American University and became obsessed with understanding the borderlands where he grew up. Wanting to experience the realities of the border for himself, Cantú took a job with the U.S. Border Patrol and worked in the deserts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas from 2008-2012. In his memoir, Cantú attempts to understand identity and violence, while discovering a human connection that is stronger than the border itself.
