The Boy Kings of Texas posterActress and producer Salma Hayek has optioned The Boy Kings of Texas, a memoir by Domingo Martinez.
The book was a finalist for the National Book Award for nonfiction this year.
Hayek acquired the rights for her production company, Ventanarosa. The deal was negotiated by Bruce Vinokur of CAA and Alice Martell of The Martell Agency.
Here’s more about the book, from the release:
Plucked from obscurity from a pile of unsolicited manuscripts, THE BOY KINGS OF TEXAS [is] first-time author Martinez’s coming-of-age story about the traumas and pleasures of growing up in Brownsville, Texas, in the 1980s … In telling his story, Martinez provides a real glimpse into a society where children are traded like commerce, physical altercations routinely solve problems, drugs are rampant, sex is often crude, and people depend on the family witch doctor for advice.
