La Perla shows Raf and others working out how to live, work, and celebrate with other misfits and their neighbors. “Shane Revisited,” for instance, explores the difference between real and fake La Perla wannabes, while “Law West of the Rio Grande” humorously depicts the challenges of gaining respect from La Perla natives. A section at the end, “Beyond La Perla,” continues the author's evolution after he and La Perla friends move farther south to a place he calls Edge City. “My Life and the Existential Duck Pop,” an interlude in San Francisco, shows the alienation and philosophical underpinning of the author’s choices.
