Description: Compared to Richard Rodriguez and Sandra Cisneros, Diego Vazquez presents an audacious debut novel about seventeen-year-old Buzzy Digit and his coming of age in 1960s El Paso, Texas. Though already dead, Buzzy's memory remains alive as he narrates his tale while flying back from Vietnam in a casket. Through family crises, parties, infidelities, Little League, and days spent at mercado, we see that he longs to escape what he calls "the yellow canary cage" of Nana Kika's bustling house. The dust and solitude of El Paso oppress him, and his sexual confusion marks him as painfully different from his friends. He drops out of high school just as the government has started a draft lottery for Vietnam, and the first numbers picked are Buzzy's.

"Affecting...Diego Vazquez manages to fill this story with wit -- and bite". -- The New York Times Book Review

"In Growing Through the Ugly, Vazquez has produced a peculiar and poetic book that pushes the borders of the Chicano coming-of-age novel". -- San Francisco Chronicle
