Poetry. Latinx Studies. LGBTQIA Studies. "In this gorgeous new collection of poems, Marina Carreira breathes life into the bittersweet stories of family and culture, a sensory journey into the striking beauty and hard truths of the immigrant landscape cultivated as an American experience. Her poet soul sings—like a Portuguese saudade—in service to safeguarding what has been lost and what should never be forgotten, 'to remember it all—sweat and tears, / Luso ancestry, to run roots through/ my future great-granddaughter's bones.'" —Rigoberto González
