    A coming-of-age memoir by a Colombian-Cuban woman about shaping lessons from home into a new, queer life  In this lyrical, coming-of-age memoir, Daisy Hernández chronicles what the women in her Cuban-Colombian family taught her about love, money, and race.

  • Stranger: The Challenge of a Latino Immigrant in the Trump Era

    “There are times when I feel like a stranger in this country. I am not complaining and it’s not for lack of opportunity. But it is something of a disappointment.

  • Kids in the Middle: How Children of Immigrants Negotiate Community Interactions for Their Families (Rutgers Series in Childhood Studies)

    Complicating the common view that immigrant incorporation is a top-down process, determined largely by parents, Vikki Katz explores how children actively broker connections that enable their families to become woven into the fabric of American life.
