18.00

For those whose parents immigrated to this country, A Cup of Water Under My Bed captures what it means to grow up caught between two worlds; between English and Spanish, between America and our parents’ homelands, between family and who we are and who we choose to love. Hernandez writes with what Federico Garcia Lorca termed duende, the deep song, which is to delve into the dark well that is inside us all and pull up the water and drink long and deep and realize only at that moment how thirsty we have been all our lives. Her book is poetic, honest, brutal and refreshing. It is a story everyone should experience, no matter their skin color or culture.
