Avi Roque, Diana Pou, Marisa Blake, and Christian Barillas, the narrators of this anthology about undocumented immigrants, are as diverse as the authors who contributed their stories. Perhaps that's why listening to these tales of terror, joy, and disappointment differs dramatically from reading them. It's a visceral experience to hear a Guatemalan or Dominican-born narrator speak about disappeared friends or being choked in a middle-school cafeteria. Particularly affecting is the retelling of a Mexican woman's deportation, based on trumped-up charges brought by a Utah couple. Having grown up in the United States, she must leave her family behind and return to a country she hardly knows. After 10 years in Mexico, she remains unable to join her "Mexican self" and her "American self." R.W.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2022]
