Adolescence, Secondhand Final Cover.jpg

Honeysuckle Press, WT’s sister press, is proud to present Adolescence, Secondhand by Francisco Delgado!

Introduced by Craig Santos Perez, Adolescence, Secondhand offers flashes of boyhood through a subtle dissection of class, race, and the failure of American suburban dreams. Houses burn and firecrackers pop while children navigate the ever-present violences that float within their lives. The writing is succinct and fantastical -- Delgado poignantly renders a world of ache, wonder, and longing onto the page. These stories are tightly crafted and quietly crushing: within them, we bear witness to a multitude of griefs, and the joys hidden and discovered in their core.

I always thought that a cello looks like a swan: a long slender neck curving into rounded hips. Perséfone, a girl with the gravest of expressions, could be either the cello buried in her bedroom, resplendent but untouched, an instrument with no voice; or the swan sailing across the water, alone and determined.

— from Perséphone in the Summer, Mónica Teresa Ortiz
