Product Description: "They call me Taco. As far as nicknames go, I guess it's as good as any…but it's a Mexican delicacy, and I happen to be Puerto Rican. Using that same logic, I would have preferred to be called by a Puerto Rican food, like Relleno or maybe Empanada; but Taco is." And so begins the adventures of a young Puerto Rican boy growing up in Brooklyn, NY in the 1970's. His stories are about colorful places and colorful people and they are the colors that paint his world.
