The essay tries to deal with the wide range of Piri Thomass experiences, where questions on the deepest issues of life are constatly dealt with, until the final answer, that is the acceptance of his in-between status: no matter where he goes, his heart is always with El Barrio, and part of El Barrio will always be in him.
