Acclaimed Salvadoran writer Mario Bencastro examines themes of war, dislocation, and longing in this bilingual collection of stories, poetry, and one novella. Many of his characters are forced to leave their homelands because of violence and poverty. But once in the Promised Land, separated from family and friends and in a country whose language and culture they don't understand, many find themselves overwhelmed by feelings of loss and nostalgia.

Readers will not soon forget Bencastro's moving images fueled by the horrible realities of war and the painful need to leave behind all that is dear.
