Just what does it mean to belong? To be visible? And what if you had neither? Where and who would you be?

In his beautifully poetic memoir, Marcelo Hernandez Castillo describes the effects of illegal immigration and attempted assimilation into the dominant paradigm on himself as a child and as an adult, and the effects of a government’s policy and forced deportation across the construct of a political border on the realities of unstoppable and longstanding human migration. How does one survive the many fractures? What does it mean to be a man, a citizen of the land, when you are always an ‘other’?
