SANTIAGO VAQUERA-VÁSQUEZ

“Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez is a perfect example of those Hispanic writers in the United States who are unknown because they write in Spanish. Their tales speak of a people trapped between two worlds, between the North and the South, caught and not being able to connect with anyone. They are searching for something that is unobtainable. Other times these characters seem to discover a sense of freedom at these crossroads as if they were lifting up the anchor, as if this journey, this nomadic existence, were the essential human condition. – Edmundo Paz Soldán

Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez (Willows, California, 1966) is an unrepentant border crosser. He has been a broadcaster and an artist. He is the author of a collection of short stories, One Day I’ll Tell You the Things I’ve Seen (2015), Luego el Silencio, (2014), and Un día te cuento las cosas que he visto (2012). His work has been published in Spain, Latin America, and in Italy: Malos elementos. Relatos sobre la corrupción social (2012), En la frontera: i migliori raconti della letteratura chicana (2008), Pequeñas resistencias 4 (2005), Se habla español (2000), and Líneas aéreas (1998).
