Like “The Boy Kings of Texas” — Martinez’s first memoir, which was a 2012 finalist for the National Book Award and was recently optioned for an HBO series — his latest, “My Heart Is a Drunken Compass,” is a tragic comedy filled with wit and cultural insight. . . . Martinez’s voice, which seems like a cross between a border outlaw and an Ivy League scholar, is so self-assured it’s difficult not to get pulled into the story. Even when he hits rock bottom, he never loses his sense of humor, and his tenacity to survive is inspiring. If his raw will and Texan grit can’t save him, his writing just might.” Read an exclusive excerpt here!
