STEALING: Life in America
A collection of Essays

By Michelle Cacho-Negrete

 

In this beautifully crafted, incisive collection, readers will admire Michelle Cacho Negrete's determination  and fierce desire to transcend her early Brooklyn ghetto roots--particularly her sense of herself as a displaced outsider. What's also impressive about Stealing is not only how candid and open the author is, but how vividly she describes this complex human struggle.   Michael Steinberg -Author, Still Pitching, 2003 ForeWord Magazine/Independent Press Memoir of the Year  

“Michelle writes with grace and clear-eyed, unsentimental vision.” Sy Safransky, Editor, Sun Magazine

“Cacho-Negrete champions the poor, the marginalized…Throughout this profound, compelling collection, she preserves the vanishing past with a hard-hitting yet lush remembrance.” Lee Hope Betcher, Editor Solstice Literary Magazine, author Horse fever.

“With crisp, confident prose, Michelle explores the intricacies of our world in essays simultaneously unique and universal. A book to be read many times.” Barry Lyga - Best Selling New York Times author

“The America we face in these timely essays is often poor, frequently unjust, sometimes heartbreaking – and always illuminated by the author’s fearless truths, keen insights, and fighting spirit.” Krista Bremer – prize winner lecturer and author of My Tender Struggle. 

“Here is the power of the written word: Alone in his room, the reader feels a strengthened connection to all of humanity.” Gin Mackey, Author of DISAPPEAR OUR DEAD and SUDDENLY SPYING

“These stories grab hold and won’t let you go. They will change you.” Anne B. Gass, lecturer, author - Voting Down The Rose

“Although these are separate essays, they are linked by these consistent themes and form in themselves an engrossing and beautifully-written memoir.” Jenny Doughty - President, Maine Poets Society, author—Sending Bette Davis to The Plumber

 

 

Michelle Cacho-Negrete is an award-winning author who currently lives in Portland Maine with her husband Kevin Smith, a prominent scientist, editor and author.  She was born in Brooklyn and many of her essays are about childhood. Four of Michelle essays have been among the 100 most notable of the year and one of her essays won Best of Net.  Her writings are in five anthologies, including a Norton College anthology.
