In this collection of linked lyrical and narrative essays, experimental translations, and reinterpreted myths, Lina María Ferreira Cabeza-Vanegas explores identity, family history, and belonging, continually examining what it means to feel familiarity but never really feel at home. "Don’t Come Back" intermixes translations of Spanish adages and adaptations of major Colombian myths with personal essays about growing up amidst violence, magic, and an unyielding Andean sun.
