Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Matthew has grown up in hell. His father is gone, and his mother drinks and hooks up with men--men who abuse Matthew and his sister, until he finally decides to hit the streets of Farmington to get away from this--and to drink himself to death, in the way that he feels he's destined to. But something happens. A man, Chris, saves him. Takes him home and cleans him up. Gets him sober. And initiates Matthew into one of Albuquerque's Native American gangs, the 505s. The 505s have been around for generations. Now, they sell heroin--and it's their subservience to the Mexican gangs that has allowed them to survive. It's the only family Matthew has ever really known, and everything is moving along until Chris decides that his little Native American gang deserves to be as big as the Mexican gangs in Albuquerque, bringing in new business from deep inside Indigenous communities in Mexico--and Matthew falls in love with his girlfriend. Matthew's story in You Who Enter Here is one of terrible darkness, but also, unexpected beauty and tenderness"-- Provided by publisher.
