The Colors of Eden

The Colors of Eden by Fernando Romero is the story of a 10-year-old boy’s odyssey from his broken home in Tijuana to an aunt’s brutal beatings in Mexico City to a trek of discovery of a 1950s Mexico unknown to him—one of heroic people and merciless thugs, of loving women and broken dreams, of pain, longings and loneliness.

Former San Diego State University journalism professor Dave Feldman calls it "a deeply moving book, one in which we learn a great deal about Mexico."

"Its message of survival, of a boy who clings tightly to his humanity through an odyssey of pain and abandonment only to find his way to the light, deserves to be read widely," writes journalist Terry Wells.
