A tough-as-nails childhood in a Texas barrio

Seattle author Domingo Martinez‘ ambition in writing his memoir “The Boy Kings of Texas” was to chronicle his upbringing in a tough Texas barrio, and maybe exorcise some ghosts along the way. Little did he know that his book would become a finalist for the National Book Award in nonfiction, one of five final contenders one of the country’s most prestigious literary prizes.

Martinez talks about his journey tonight on “Well Read,” the books-and-authors television program that airs at 7 and 10 p.m. tonight on state channel TVW (it repeats Wednesday on KBTC, the Tacoma public television station). Or you can watch it here:
