Myriam Gurba is la chingona feroz of experimental memoir. Mean is a hybrid memoir-novel that centers on Gurba’s childhood growing up mixed race with a murder mystery slipped inside. Gurba is unapologetic in laying out her experiences with sexual violence, casual everyday racism, and embracing her queer identity. She breathes fire and Spanglish, batters you with her biting humor then buries you in truths you cannot look away from. Just when you think you’ve got this book figured out, Gurba will kick your feet from under you. This is how memoirs should always be written – with fierceness, brutal honesty and a wry smile cutting through it all. -Angela Maria Spring
