This Side of Skin

"Here is a poetry so compelling, so vital, that it mesmerizes the reader, engaging us in Parédez's passion for language, for justice, and for her people as she searches for the origins of home and belonging." - Marjorie Agosín

"Like skin, these poems are alive to the touch. Parédez gives me hope for the future of poetry in this country, for the future of young Latinas and Latinos everywhere. Gracias, Deborah." - Martín Espada

“An intelligent and complex collection. . . .the echoes of loss and remembering inhabit these rich and vital poems.” - Yvette Benavides, San Antonio Express-News
