-Harrison Candelaria Fletcher, author of Finding Querencia: Essays from In Between
This book is the song of the sister who died by the sister who survived. It is a distillation, a documentary, whose milestones are marked by St. Teresa, Dickinson, Neruda, Dante, the Gospel of Thomas, and The Tibetan Book of the Dead. If you want to know how a family touches grief tenderly and respectfully as loss drills its terror, if you want to know how a ten-year-old confronts darkness, conducts a life, and delivers her heart back to its origins whole-read Garza's testimony, where a simple field in Ohio vibrates with the knowledge that the important matters weed themselves out and one is left with the essential nature of one's love.
-Barbara Cully, author of Desire Reclining, The New Intimacy, and Shoreline Series
