RELEVANT AND TIMELY: Patrias is a must-read to understand the past and future of the immigrant story in the United States, and the role of Mexicans in shaping America’s history. A deeply moving book full of colorful characters searching for home, it is essential reading.
ENGLISH EDITION: Homelands was published earlier this year by Bloomsbury Publishing and has been extremely well received by the international media.
PROMINENT JOURNALIST: Alfredo Corchado is a Mexican-American journalist and a correspondent for The Dallas Morning News in Mexico City. His writing is raw and his descriptions paint a vivid picture of Mexico.
MEXICAN POPULATION IN THE U.S.: With over thirty million Americans of Mexican descent, the United States is home to the second largest Mexican community after Mexico. This book has the potential to reach a huge market.
Praise for Patrias:
“Timely…his book explains broad trends with engaging ease. He shows that the early movement out of Mexico was driven by environmental rather than strictly economic forces—Corchado’s family was fleeing drought—and that more recent migrants have been more concerned with finding safety than fleeing poverty.” - Washington Post
“In Homelands [Corchado] recounts his experiences and those of three friends—altogether, three Mexicans and an American of Mexican descent—as they grapple with having two countries to call home…It eloquently chronicles the effects of the North American Free-Trade Agreement between Mexico, America and Canada, the militarisation of the border after the attacks of September 11th 2001 and Mr Trump’s victory.” - The Economist
“A mix of memoir and deep research into various Mexican and American political immigration issues, exploring complications of life on both sides of the border…An affecting, timely book.” - Kirkus Reviews
“In addition to providing historical context for the current debate on immigration, this book is a timely and personal meditation on the concept of ’migrant’ in the United States.” - Publishers Weekly
