Gary Soto was born in Fresno, California, in April, 1952, to working-class Mexican-American parents. At a young age, he worked in the fields of the San Joaquin Valley. He was not academically motivated as a child, but became interested in poetry during his high school years. He attended Fresno City college and California State University at Fresno while working toward an undergraduate degree, and later studied poetry at the University of California, Irvine, where he earned his MFA in 1976. His first collection of poems, The Elements of San Joaquin , won the United States Award of the International Poetry Forum in 1976 and was published in 1977. The New York Times Book Review honored the book by reprinting six of the poems. Since then, he has published numerous books of poetry, including A Simple Plan (Chronicle Books, 2007), One Kind of Faith (2003), and

edit Biography
Gary Soto was born to working-class Mexican-American parents Manuel (1910–1957) and Angie Soto (1923-). In his youth, he worked in the fields of the San Joaquin Valley and in factories in Fresno. Gary's father died in 1957, when he was just five years old. Because his family had to struggle to find work, he had little time or encouragement for school, hence, he was not a good student. Yet Soto claims that in spite of his early academic record, he had begun his literary career by reading

Soto, Gary
April 12, 1952 Fresno, California Author Soto, Gary. AP/Wide World Photos. Reproduced by permission. Gary Soto is a man who writes from experience. He grew up in one of the many barrios (poor Mexican American neighborhoods) of Fresno, California, and since the mid-1970s he has borrowed from that community to create an astonishing number of works. Soto, however, does not see himself as strictly a Chicano author. True, in his over twenty books of poetry and prose for adults and in over thirty books for younger readers, he focuses on the daily trials and tribulations of Spanish-speaking Americans. But, through crisp, clear imagery and his true-to-life characters, Soto connects with readers of all ages and backgrounds. As he explained in his Scholastic Booklist
Life in the barrio
Quill Although Soto was not encouraged to read at home, he was exploring the world of books on his own at the school library. Some of his favorites were by American authors such as Ernest Hemingway

Key words: Short story, Modern Work, Fiction, American Literature, Latino
Recommended Reading Level: Grades 6, 7, 8
Theme: The stories deal with growing up in Fresno, California and learning about youth, age, love, friendship, success, failure, wealth, poverty and family.
Summary: This is a collection of short stories set in Fresno. The stories all deal with Latino children growing up in Fresno; going to the mall, to school, to the park, trying out for Little League. The stories deal with events from everyday life, but they reveal universal themes.
Strengths: The characters are quite believable. They are common people dealing with common problems. It is easy to identify with them.
Weaknesses: The stories are a bit flat. They don’t hold much suspense. Other Notes: Don’t assume that you have to come from Latino heritage to enjoy these stories. These stories will strike a cord in everyone’s heart. Top Home

Soto, Gary. Jesse. New York: Scholastic, 1994.
166pp. FRY: 6 ISBN: 0-590-52837-8
Summary: Viet Nam era, Fresno, CA. America is a hotbed of change. Nixon is president; Cesar Chavez is organizing California's field workers. Jesse and his older brother, Abel, have taken an apartment, enrolled in college, and work weekends as cotton pickers, in order to cover basic expenses. Their subsistence is still poverty-level. Jesse illustrates class division, the bridge between youth and adulthood, and the ever-present threat of having the fun years plucked away by the exigencies of war.
Review: Liberally spiced with Spanish dialogue. Heart-rending portrayal of honest, innocent young Hispanic men trying to improve their lots in life (when America still believed it was a meritocracy), including the first-ever encounter with romance. An excellent examination of the Viet Nam era, from the perspective of poor minorities, Jesse would do well within the context of a thematic study of migrant workers' struggles and the uncertainty of the future when the draft hovers menacingly, ready to pluck the poor from society. Out of context, Jesse may seem anachronistic to today's youth; however, people's memories are short, and

Gary Soto
Soto lives with his wife and daughter in Berkeley, California. Gary Soto's favorite food is frijoles (beans). Here's a recipe for your family to try! Frijoles
  • 2 1/3 cups dried black beans 1 large onion 1 large green bell pepper 2 tablespoons cider vinegar 2 or 3 bay leaves 1 tsp. salt
Rinse beans. In a 4-quart heavy saucepan, cover beans with cold water and soak for one day. Bring soaked beans to a boil in water, adding more water, if necessary, to cover beans by about 1 1/2 inches. Simmer beans, partly covered, over low heat for 1 hour, or until beans just start getting tender but are not falling apart. Chop onion and bell pepper and stir into beans along with vinegar, bay leaves, and salt. Simmer beans, partly covered, for 2 to 3 hours, until they are very tender. Remove bay leaves. You can eat the beans hot, but they're even better if you let them cool and then refrigerate them for a day or so before eating.
