EPISODE DESCRIPTION

For his series on the U.S.-Mexico border, NPR's Steve Inskeep interviews Sergio Troncoso and his parents Rodolfo and Bertha Troncoso at their home in Ysleta. The family talks about growing up with kerosene lamps and stoves and an outhouse in the backyard, but his father’s humorous and honest responses to being a proud Mexicano steal the show.

Sergio Troncoso is the author of The Last Tortilla and Other Stories, Crossing Borders: Personal Essays, and the novels The Nature of Truth and From This Wicked Patch of Dust. He co-edited Our Lost Border: Essays on Life amid the Narco-Violence.

(2014; mp3 audio format; 8 minutes)
