For Love of the Dollar by J.M. Servín

Literary Fiction and Creative Nonfiction

Mexican gonzo journalist J.M. Servín spent nearly a decade as an illegal immigrant in the United States. For Love of the Dollar is a young writer’s tale of ambitions undermined by economic forces, racial divides and artistic hubris. Hilarious and irreverent, Servín worked in kitchens, gas stations, golf courses, and finally, as a “manny" for a dysfunctional Connecticut family. His view of the plight of the undocumented worker confronts as much what it means to be Mexican, as it does American, laying bare a version of the American dream few have had the courage to articulate.
