Publisher's Summary

Francisco Jiménez writes of his childhood growing up in an immigrant Mexican family. His narrative is simple, as from a child's point of view, but that same simplicity packs the power of a highly skilled storyteller.

Beautifully and authentically rendered by actor and playwright Adrian Vargas, these twelve stories tell of the almost unendurable journey most migrant campesinos undertake to find the "American Dream." The recording concludes with an afterword recorded by the author. The Circuit is also available in Spanish as Cajas de Cartón.

    "An excellent listen, in English OR en español!"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Circuit?

    The fire that destroyed the familiy's first real house (as opposed to the makeshift shacks and tents usually provided by the farmer-employers).


    Have you listened to any of Adrian Vargas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I also listened to the version in Spanish, and it was equally wonderful.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I think a film SHOULD be made of this fine collection of well-structured vignettes: the tag line could be, 'an updated, and livelier, Grapes of Wrath'.


    Any additional comments?

    This colorful and poignant
