The 49ers at McSweeney's, episode 13: Ilan Stavans
"There is one moment in my life, really, that transformed me forever, and that is the moment when I said I am giving everything up, everything that I have at the age of 25, no tender age really, and I will go on my own as an immigrant to the United States without anything. I don’t have anyone there to protect me, to offer me a job. I will just take the risk because if I don’t take the risk right now I will never take it."
from the 13th installment of The 49ers: Oral Histories of Americans Facing 50 for McSweeney's, this with professor, editor and author Ilan Stavans.
