Susurros a Mi Padre by Erick Saenz
Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. California Interest. Latinx Studies. SUSSUROS A MI PADRE represents Erick Sáenz's efforts to connect language and culture, family and loss. The book charts the author's fractured relationship with his father: a man whose Mexican blood he inherited. Sáenz collages memories, first-hand accounts, and interviews related to his Latinx identity in an effort to resurrect the culture that alludes him. From Los Angeles to San Jose, this is his journey to redefine himself.
