Ross Reynolds speaks with author Domingo Martinez about his new memoir, “My Heart is a Drunken Compass," which recounts two terrifying late night phone calls about loved ones in the emergency room.

Martinez lives in Seattle and his work sketches life in the city, but often hearkens back to Brownsville, Texas, where he grew up in the 1980s and '90s. His first book, “The Boy Kings of Texas,” was a New York Times best seller.
