In his new memoir, "Los Cocuyos" (Ecco, $25.99), inaugural poet Richard Blanco - who was born in Madrid to Cuban exile parents - revisits his childhood growing up in the Cuban-American community of Westchester, Fla., where he longed to shop at "el Winn Deezee" instead of neighborhood bodegas (they didn't have Ritz crackers or Easy Cheese or the other disastrous American food he loved). He fought with his big brother, endured the tyranny of his tough abuela (who was also a bookie, running a numbers game out of their house) and acted as the perfect Quinces date (even though he wasn't attracted to girls and had long endured his grandmother's ominous advice: "It's better to be it but not act like it, than to not be it and yet act like it").
