Overview

"A Body Across Two Hemispheres is a timely book, one many of us need and will be grateful to have read." —Shara McCallum

"A Body Across Two Hemispheres is the kind of memoir that makes us more human; the kind written with tenderness about ordinary people with ordinary and exceptional, bitter and beautiful, small and big lives. Like ours." —Adriana Páramo

"Always honest and surprising, Buitron’s book showcases multiple essay forms to tell a powerful, timeless story. A wonderful debut." —Dinty W. Moore

In this electrifying debut, Victoria Buitron comes of age between Ecuador and the United States as she explores her ancestry, learns two languages, and searches for a place she can call home. It portrays not only the immigrant experience, but the often-overlooked repatriate experience while interweaving facets of depression, family history, and self-love. With the utmost honesty, A Body Across Two Hemispheres encompasses the deep and complex layers of teenage life into adulthood—and the sacrifices made along the way for Victoria to become who she was meant to be all along.
