Publisher Comments:

Abandonado por su padre, un trabajador migratorio, a la tierna edad de dos meses, y luego tambiand#233;n, a los diez aand#241;os, por una madre emocionalmente inestable, Land#243;pez creciand#243; solo, con rabia, atormentado y objeto de burlas en el Valle de San Fernando, California, criado por unos abuelos para quienes el amor era una mala palabra. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Inspirado por sus and#237;dolos, Freddie Prinze Sr. y Richard Pryor, Land#243;pez comienza un turbulento recorrido de veinte aand#241;os por el frenand#233;tico mundo de los comediantes — tratando de aprender un arte que nadie puede enseand#241;ar; triunfando una noche y fracasando la sigui-ente; luchando contra la ira, el alcohol, la depresiand#243;n, y la duda, al tiempo que se enfrenta a las barreras levantadas para impedir que los chicanos salgan adelante, especialmente en los programas de las grandes cadenas de televisiand#243;n. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; En este dand#237;a, el programa de George Land#243;pez es un and#233;xito en las horas de mand#225;s audiencia en ABC y sus presentaciones personales como comediante, vendidas a capacidad, atraen a miles de admiradores de todas edades que se desternillan de la risa con las historias salidas de una vida que, de lo triste que era, llegand#243; a ser cand#243;mica.

Synopsis:

Today, George Lopez stars in his own hit television show and performs stand-up to sold-out crowds across the country--but the road to the top was anything but easy. In "Why You Crying?. Lopez gives us the funny and sad sides of his life story, whether he's writing about his poor, fatherless upbringing in California; triumph in the battle against drinking and depression; the inspiration of idols such as Freddie Prinze; or his road to becoming a devoted husband and father. Along the way, Lopez riffs on the importance of family, amusing differences between Chicano and Anglo culture, the tedious jobs and colorful characters he encountered before committing to comedy full-time and more--all part of a fascinating life and career that have broken barriers of race, culture and class and given us all the gift of laughter.
