Nuestra América by Claudio Lomnitz

Book set in Tuluá, Colombia and other places. Added on 2022/01:

“I also intuited in all of this a desire to protect us from the monstrosity of his unspoken past, of the pain of survival and other difficulties that accompany holding on to customs in exile. Cinna try to teach me to live both with immigration and assimilation. He wanted to show me also how to be like a stone, a part of the landscape. But there was also in all of this an inclination to respect the individual personalities of his children and to allow us to flourish in the New World.” #nuestraamérica #claudiolomnitz #lomnitz #otherpress #autobiography #translation #nuestraamerica #familysaga
