      This beautiful picture book pays loving tribute to the author's California childhood. My Papi Has a Motorcycle is not only a love letter to her hardworking dad who showed her different ways of experiencing home but also to the beloved city and community she grew up in and the memories of home that we all hold near and dear. The market with gumball machines 5/5. Expertly translated into English for the first time by Achy Obejas, who renders the rhythmic lyricism of Indiana’s Dominican Spanish in language that propels the book forward with the relentless beat of a merengue, Papi is furious, musical, and full of wit—a passionate, overwhelming, and very human explosion of artistic virtuosity.
