Reviews

"A very moving and profound book by one of the most significant LGBTQ+ voices coming from Latin America."
--The Morning Star

"Resilient, introspective, and reverent."
--Harvard Review

"Relinquenda is a rarity in that, in one book, it contains multiplicity of longings and reckonings. Alexandra Regalado is poet as historian, and poet as that family member we all have who keeps the names in whatever holy book we name, the one who has the photo albums--and more than that, who we gather around when they begin to sing our stories."
--Reginald Dwayne Betts
