    Ni de aquí, Ni de allá: A multi-perspective account of the Dominican diasporic experience.

    "Ni de Aquí, Ni de Allá is a fresh collection of diverse voices from the Dominican Writers community that offers a balance of contemporary writers from multiple generations of the Dominican diaspora. The world of Dominican literature we grew up in taught us how stories become a fierce tool that serve to amplify the realities of some while muting and many times erasing the experiences of many. This anthology includes stories that are a product of those generations. In their writings you will find people who navigate homesickness, nostalgia, assimilation, identity, immigration, and so many other societal factors created by the systems of both the United States and the Dominican Republic. While these inidividuals grapple with full acceptance or a sense of home in both societies, this community of writers put words on paper so that we can find our own full selves in their words. Ni de Aquí, Ni de Allá attests to the vibrancy, power and force of our sentimientos encontrados in the balance of both the here and the there.

    Reviews:

    Arguably nobody but the Dominican Yol understands that once you’ve left Quisqeya and set foot in Nueva Yol or anywhere else in the U.S., you belong to nowhere but yourself. Ni de aquí, ni de allá explores that looking back at La Patria through the lens of immigrants and of the Dominican-American experience and makes plain the accompanying feeling of being untethered. 

    —Roberto Carlos Garcia, author of [Elegies], black / Maybe: An Afro Lyric, and Melancolía.

    Ni de aquí, ni de allá is the most current and multi-perspective creative account of the Dominican diasporic experience. The many representative voices, all bilingual and bicultural, living their aquí y allá (their transtierro) on their own terms, have immigration as their currency, and each contributor, in their own creative way, delves into issues of identity, activism, creativity, and service (giving back), all intertwined in the everyday living and surviving with dignity while trying to make a difference aquí y allá.  ---Keiselim (Keysi) A. Montás, author of De la emigración al transtierro
