    One thought on “Across the Wire: Life and Hard Times on the Mexican Border”

    1. Great read. Everything I've read from Urrea is excellent. This is my first non-fiction from him and he delivers a wrenching, window to the reality of poverty near the border. I found this copy at a goodwill and it was signed. So sweet! of course my son, who's 10, dropped in the tub, and got it wet. :( I was on the last 20 pages before finishing it. Yes that happened I clearly had to disown him. :)
