HOW TO PULL APART THE EARTH is an homage to the intrinsic thread that weaves the culture of Mexico together with the United States, and the echo of colonization that works to erase it. Cordero skillfully exemplifies the complexity & beauty of growing up in a borderland, and the sacrifices paid for the dream.
“Cordero guides us to the collective memory found in her own personal history, reminding us that we are rooted in the same familial tenderness.”—O, The Oprah Magazine
