"Nelson Simón's Itinerary of Forgetting is a crucial text that inscribes our bark with its loss, reaching out from the page as if raising a ghost. Lawrence Schimel has brought Simón's unmistakable voice into English and has done so with the tenderness of a translator who has taken the time to mark each heartbeat, each word in its rise and fall."
