accommodating and acceptably 
and acceptably and in the end it s uite a powerful book Though digressive as all hell Breslin paints a spot on portrait of New York City and municipal government corruption but most of all he humanizes the most anonymous character on the city street the illegal Mexican worker With tenderness and trenchancy he brings the abstract statistic to glorious life It all about the systems and the assholes who run them. H of an undocumented worker along with broader issues of municipal corruption and America’s deadly and controversial border policy From the Trade Paperback edition.
