Hunger of Memory is the story of Mexican-American Richard Rodriguez, who begins his schooling in Sacramento, California, knowing just 50 words of English, and concludes his university studies in the stately quiet of the reading room of the British Museum. Here is the poignant journey of a “minority student” who pays the cost of his social assimilation and academic success with a painful alienation — from his past, his parents, his culture — and so describes the high price of “making it” in middle-class America. Provocative in its positions on affirmative action and bilingual education, Hunger of Memory is a powerful political statement, a profound study of the importance of language ... and the moving, intimate portrait of a boy struggling to become a man.

In his dazzling new memoir, Richard Rodriguez reflects on the color brown and the meaning of Hispanics to the life of America today. Rodriguez argues that America has been brown since its inception-since the moment the African and the European met within the Indian eye. But more than simply a book about race, Brown is about America in the broadest sense—a look at what our country is, full of surprising observations by a writer who is a marvelous stylist as well as a trenchant observer and thinker.

Seminar paper from the year 1998 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2 (B), University of Aberdeen (English Department), course: Chicano Fiction, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Study of mexican-american identity with two books and authors: Tomas Rivera ..".And the Earth Did Not Devour Him" and Richard Rodriguez: "Hunger of Memory: The Education of Richard Rodriguez.", abstract: In this essay, I will address the question of Chicano identity by investigating two very different texts, that both deal with a quest for identity in a Mexican-American context: Tomas Rivera's ...And the Earth Did Not Devour Him and Richard Rodriguez' Hunger of Memory: The Education of Richard Rodriguez. I will first discuss the contextual differences between the two works. Then I will consider the definitions of identity upon which the texts are based. Going deeper into the works themselves, I will finally discuss along which lines the two quests for identity develop. In conclusion, I will connect my investigations to the question of whether Chicano identity is unified or fragmented. Both Tomas Rivera's ...And the Earth Did Not Devour Him and Richard Rodriguez' Hunger of Memory are about an individual searching for his identity. In both works, the protagonist is a Mexican-American or 'Chicano'. However, the differences between the two books are huge. The generic difference is most obvious: Rivera's work is a fictional narrative, which Hector Calderon termed 'novel-as-tales'.1 Rodriguez, referring to his book, speaks of ' e]ssays impersonating an autobiography' (p. 7). This entails that the subject searching for identity is, in Rodriguez' case, the author himself, or rather his literary image. In Rivera's case, the subject is purely fictional, although some critics have identified this literary subject with the author."

Memory's Stories is an interdisciplinary analysis of multicultural life narratives. The author created an innovative schema to evaluate classic and contemporary texts, synthesizing theoretical perspectives from psychology, literary theory, feminist and multicultural studies. The schema is based on his fifteen years of teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, such as "Multicultural Autobiographies" and "Psychology, Multicultural Narratives, and Religion." Chapter One introduces the author's schema and explores Saint Augustine's The Confessions. Chapter Two uses Erik Erikson's psychosocial development theory to examine Thomas Merton's The Seven Storey Mountain. In Chapter Three, the author evaluates Black Elk Speaks and The Autobiography of Malcolm X, using William James's psychology of religion framework. Feminist literary theorists, like Sidonie Smith, provide the critical tools for Chapter Four and Maxine Hong Kingston's The Woman Warrior. In Chapter Five, with Dan McAdams's life story model of identity, the author analyzes three serial autobiographies by Richard Rodriguez: Hunger of Memory; Days of Obligation; and Brown. Chapter Six synthesizes recent interdisciplinary scholarship on redemption stories, innovative composition strategies, and cognitive science research on autobiographical memory, evaluating James McBride's auto/biography, The Color of Water.

An award–winning writer delivers a major reckoning with religion, place, and sexuality in the aftermath of 9/11 Hailed in The Washington Post as “one of the most eloquent and probing public intellectuals in America,” Richard Rodriguez now considers religious violence worldwide, growing public atheism in the West, and his own mortality. Rodriguez’s stylish new memoir—the first book in a decade from the Pulitzer Prize finalist—moves from Jerusalem to Silicon Valley, from Moses to Liberace, from Lance Armstrong to Mother Teresa. Rodriguez is a homosexual who writes with love of the religions of the desert that exclude him. He is a passionate, unorthodox Christian who is always mindful of his relationship to Judaism and Islam because of a shared belief in the God who revealed himself within an ecology of emptiness. And at the center of this book is a consideration of women—their importance to Rodriguez’s spiritual formation and their centrality to the future of the desert religions. Only a mind as elastic and refined as Rodriguez’s could bind these threads together into this wonderfully complex tapestry.
