In this number of associated lyrical and narrative essays, experimental translations, and reinterpreted myths, Lina Maria Ferreira Cabeza-Vanegas launches into an exploration of domestic and identification, relations historical past and belonging, consistently analyzing what it skill to consider familiarity yet by no means feel at home.


Don’t Come Back intermixes translations of Spanish adages and variations of significant Colombian myths with own essays approximately growing to be up amidst violence, magic, and an unyielding Andean solar. house is position and time and folks and language and historical past, and none of those are ever set in stone. trying to reconcile the irreconcilable and translate the untranslatable—to flow easily and cohesively among tradition, language, and place—Ferreira Cabeza-Vanegas is torn among areas, among the aunt who begs her to come to Colombia and the mum who tells her, “There’s not anything right here for you, Lina. Don’t come back.” Don’t Come Back is an exploration of domestic and identification that continually asks, “If you actually might return, may you?”
