Brando Skyhorse | Take This Man: A Memoir

Determined to give her son everything but the truth of his father or Mexican ancestry, Brando Skyhorse’s mother took the last name of a stranger in prison for armed robbery and created a new identity for her young child as the Native American son of an incarcerated political activist. Acclaimed for his “indelible storytelling” (O, The Oprah Magazine), Skyhorse recounts his turbulent childhood growing up with five stepfathers in his memoir Take This Man. Skyhorse’s debut novel, The Madonnas of Echo Park, received the 2011 PEN/Hemingway Award and the Sue Kaufman Award for First Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
