Brando Skyhorse

Guest: Brando Skyhorse

Acclaimed author Brando Skyhorse’s new memoir, Take This Man, chronicles his tumultuous childhood in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Echo Park.  Through the untruths of his eccentric mother, Skyhorse was led to believe that he was of Native American descent, and that his father was an imprisoned political activist.  It was years before he found out the truth about his Mexican-American heritage, and the father who abandoned his family.  BRANDO SKYHORSE joins us to discuss his life and his work for this hour of Radio Times.
