Summary
"Marco [Antonio] was a self-taught genius at fixing and creating things--including a mythology about himself as a shaman, a dreamcaster, and an animal whisperer ... Before long Marco goes on the run from his family and responsibilities--to Asia, to Europe, and eventually back to Mexico--with long crack and whiskey binges, suffering from what he claimed were CIA mind control experiments. As soon as she's old enough, [the author] follows [and] searches for explanations for her father's behavior other than schizophrenia, the diagnosis her mother whispered to [her] ... She takes his wildest claims seriously and investigates them [and] begins mirroring her father's self-destructive behavior ... in her quest to understand and redeem [him] from the underworld of his obsessions and delusions and self-destruction"--
