J.M. Servin, Por Amor al $$$

From Mexico City David Lida writes: "The best Mexican book I've read recently is Por amor al dólar by J.M. Servín, published by Joaquín Mortiz-Planeta. It is very sardonic memoir of his years as a "mojado" in and around New York, working in restaurants, as a babysitter and in a gas station. Servín strikes me as a very special, unexpected writer." Hmmm... anyone translating this?
