In this dislocating urban environment Iliana reluctantly confronts the anger and desperation that seem to seep through every crack of her familys small house, and experiences all the contradictions, superstitions, joys, and pains that come from a life caught between two cultures. In this magnificent debut novel, filled with graceful prose and searing detail, Loida Maritza Prez offers a penetrating portrait of the American immigrant experience as she explores the true meanings of identity, family--and home.
