VIVIANA M. CARLOS—A Latin American narrative: on palm trees as immigrants and an archive as a conversation after death.

The book is delicate and small, the quality of the paper is like a palm leaf, alive and textured, the images are faded. There is grief of a father lost and there is the politics of being transplanted.
