Anker Frankoniabout this book: "Mexican Eskimo" is a story about growing up through space and time. It's a love story that weaves the silken threads of faith, trust and hope into a lifeline of spiritual guidance that tethers a distinctly present-day experience to a world of creation magic that existed so long before now, that time itself had not yet started to measure itself in years.
A faithful documentation of a most unlikely existence, "Mexican Eskimo" is an intricate layer-cake of actual and imagined pieces of dimly remembered facts, generously frosted with sweet, sticky gobs of gospel-truth fantasies.
The story is rife with magical realism, and also features a large cast of young protagonists struggling with complex issues of identity conflicts and independence that will resonate with a wide range of today’s adult readers.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Anker Frankoni is part joker, part thief; part joyful, part grief. "Mexican Eskimo" is a tale of two lives separated by the one he's currently occupying, and is guaranteed to offer keen reflections into the one you currently call your own.

connected from the very startI downloaded a copy of this based on a friend's suggestion and loved it right away. I like conversational writing because it engages the reader and Mexican Eskimo is very engaging. It's also best to approach a tough subject through engagement and from the very first chapter Frankoni does that. As far as the writing style, this work reads more like poetry than prose, and the way interconnected threads of the story-line are woven together kept me enthralled from start to finish. I can hardly wait for more from this gifted new author. [by George]
