Wilfred Santiago was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico. He now lives in Chicago.
With a strong, tightly-written narrative that often deftly
illustrates social issues of the time, the book seeks to show the
private life and motivation behind Jordan's basketball career--it's
more a behind-the-scenes biography than an action-adventure sports
drama. ... In all, this is a sympathetic portrayal of Jordan for
those who like to look deeper into their sports stars.
This unique glance into Michael Jordan's life explores some of the darker corners of his closet. Wilfred Santiago (writer and artist) tells this story in smaller chunks of Jordan's life throughout five major sections of the book, each including brief interludes. The nonlinear structure of the story helps maintain a smooth pace and is artistically diverse in execution.--Michael Bettendorf
