Reyna Grande Nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award!

Please join us in congratulating Reyna Grande on her nomination for the National Book Critics Circle Award in the Autobiography category for her memoir THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US!

In this extraordinary memoir, award-winning writer Reyna Grande vividly brings to life her tumultuous early years, capturing all the confusion and contradictions of childhood, especially one spent torn between two parents and two countries. Elated when she feels the glow of her father’s love and approval, Reyna knows that at any moment he might turn angry or violent. Only in books and music and her rich imaginary life does she find solace, a momentary refuge from a world in which every place feels like “El Otro Lado.”

The Distance Between Us captures one girl’s passage from childhood to adolescence and beyond. A funny, heartbreaking, lyrical story, it reminds us that the joys and sorrows of childhood are always with us, invisible to the eye but imprinted on the heart, forever calling out to us of those places we first called home. The book is currently available in hardcover with a new paperback edition to be released in mid-March. Congratulations Reyna!
