Mexican Eskimo

Mexican Eskimo
Book Launch Party!

Meet Author Anker Frankoni

Tues. July 28th @ 7pm

"Mexican Eskimo" is a story about growing up through space and time. It's a love story that weaves the silken threads of faith, trust and hope into a lifeline of spiritual guidance that tethers our present-day experience to a world of creation magic that existed so long before now, that time itself had not yet started to measure itself in years. A faithful documentation of a most unlikely existence, "Mexican Eskimo" is an intricate layer-cake of actual and imagined pieces of dimly remembered facts, generously frosted with sweet, sticky gobs of gospel-truth fantasies. The story is peppered with international flavor, vibrant characters, multi-cultural themes, and lush settings. It is rife with magical realism, and also features a large cast of young protagonists struggling with identity conflicts and independence.

Anker Frankoni is part Joker, part Thief, part Joyful, part Grief but strives above all to be a Defender of the Right and Pursuer of Lofty Undertakings. His first novel "Mexican Eskimo" is a tale of two lives, separated by the one he's currently occupying, which he calls #Fictionwithamission — 10% of all his writer's income goes directly to non-profit groups working to help stop child-abuse.
