More than an immigrant narrative, more than a critique of American society, Missing is the story of a man never quite lives the American dream, but lives a life that is all too American. The father is a tough and proud man and the thought of driving a taxi is impossible to accept. It is a lonely experience and in one of the more moving episodes he breaks down crying on the Santa Monica pier. A young American sailor comforts him and Carlos says at that moment he finally lost his fear, the fear that had come form being a stranger and alone. To understand Carlos, one has to know more about his father. He is a cold man who holds his family at a distance.

It does have some marks of previous use, and some pages are wrinkled; however, this is just a mere detail. I've only read 60 pages of the book, but I can say that the author proposes hard questions facing familiar bonds He is intense, clear, and shows a peculiar way on displaying concepts when trying to make a point.
