Immigration Chronicles

Pego published a compilation of some of his first immigration chronicles in Como ovejas descarriadas (Like Lost Sheep, 1933). Humor is a prime component of these texts about his experience as an immigrant in New York. Pego qualified his chronicles as “lost sheep” in the prologue because they were published in periodicals in Costa Rica, Mexico and Spain.
