tears and laughter simultaneously NBC News A searingly funny and fearless book.written with such velocity and stark recollection that it feels as if the author is writing to save his life Take This Man should be on the same shelf with Tobias Wolffs This Boys Life, or maybe it should occupy an off tilt, splintered shelf of its own It would make a terrific movie, if that werent an undignified thing to say about such a fine literary work I say this because Skyhorses writing has such vivid immediacy, beautifully drawn scenes and cameo appearances by all sorts of unusual, memorable characters A tour de force The Washington Post Skyhorse has a fascinating story to tell, and he tells it with the skill and sway of a novelist It s a story that s almost too big to be true Yet it reveals so much that s universal, about human longing and belonging, about the endless capacity we have to betray and rescue ourselves and the people we love San Francisco Chronicle Skyhorse s memoir is a West Coast version of Augusten Burroughs Running With Scissors A funny, shocking, generous hearted book Entertainment Weekly Skyhorse is a thoughtful, lyrical writer, and his memoir is filled with epigrammatic observations that keep his story from becoming a mere catalog of misery Boston Globe Top this Skyhorse grew up poor in a claustrophobic 1980s Echo Park home with a Chicana mother who pretended they were Native American, a bisexual grandmother who pretended she was straight, and five no account stepfathers who each got out when the getting was no longer good Skyhorse really is a star, transcending a wack ball family and a then sketchy neighborhood to become a gifted writer Skyhorse s last page works so well, it gilds the rest of the book in a sweet, retroactive glow Sometimes a book catches you in a weak moment, so I went back to read the scene a few weeks later, just to make sure Knowing what was coming made it only better Los Angeles Times A writer on the rise this is a gripping memoir Details Take This Man is earnest and searching, genuinely interested in exploring the complex arrangement that we call family with exquisite prose, but also a mature acknowledgment of the complex nature of memory, longing, love, and disappointment The Los Angeles Review of Books A moving and poignant search for identity under impossible circumstances I sobbed through the final section Part of that power comes from Skyhorses understanding of narrative, his novelists eye One ends Take This Man rooting for Skyhorse, hoping that he can take all these stories and turn them into something worthwhile This book is certainly a start Flavorwire A stunning memoir of emotional dysfunction and hard won understanding Skyhorse has a keen ear for language and for story but his capacity to understand and forgive, to find the humanity in the difficult people around him, should elevate his work to a literary classic Shelf AwarenessNamed one of Kirkus Reviews Best Nonfiction Books of 2014 One of NBC Newss 10 Best Latino Books of 2014 A West Coast version of Augusten Burroughss Running With ScissorsA funny, shocking, generous hearted book Entertainment Weekly about a boy, his five
