ABOUT THE BOOK
Born in Cuba, Miret fled with his family to the US to escape the Castro regime. Through vivid language and graphic details, he recounts growing up in a strange new land with a tyrannical stepfather and the roles that poverty and violence played in shaping the grit that became critical to his survival. In his teen years, he finds himself squatting in abandoned buildings with unforgettably eccentric runaways and victims of similar childhood trauma. With like-minded misfits he helps pioneer a new musical genre, but with money scarce and commercial success impossible, he turns to running drugs to support his family and winds up in prison. It's the ultimate test of his toughness and perseverance that eventually sets him on a path towards redemption.

My Riot is both an unflinching portrait of downtown New York in the 1980s and a testament to the perils of growing up too fast.
