'Mexican Hooker #1' author Carmen Aguirre

Q

"Mexican Hooker #1: And My Other Roles Since The Revolution" picks up where Carmen Aguirre's celebrated memoir "Something Fierce" left off. Loaded with hard lessons and painful memories, the book revisits everything from broken oaths of silence to a face-to-face conversation with the man who raped her. Aguirre joins Shad to discuss her powerful account of past traumas, how she's reclaimed them to tell her own story, and why she didn't grow up thinking that breaking down was an option.
