Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez

Johanna Lawshea

Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez is the author of Algún día te cuento las cosas que he visto and Luego el silencio. He is an assistant professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of New Mexico. His most recent collection is One Day I’ll Tell You the Things I’ve Seen: Stories (University of New Mexico Press). The stories in Vaquera-Vásquez’s intimate conversational narrative take readers around the world, from the orchards of California to the cornfields of Iowa, from the neighborhoods of Madrid and Mexico City to the Asian shore of Istanbul. As the characters navigate borders and border crossings–both physical and psychological–they attempt to make sense of their increasingly complex memories and relationships.
