August writes, “What is this book about?
It is about life and the inevitable consequences of wrong choices. Guillermo asked Symbo, ‘What is dead?’ There were incidents in his life, both real and in dreams, beyond the visible, and social struggles he needed to understand.
‘His hands were holding his thighs. His body began to be pulled by an invisible force.’
‘Turning his head, he saw the snake raise his head ready to strike him, but he fell backward.’
Through the guidance of Symbo, Guillermo sought to make sense of life’s enigma. This is a true story based on Puerto Rican families and their daily struggles, as seen by Guillermo in his growing years.
Symbo’s words were the rudder that helped him navigate through life.”
