Half-memoir, half-biography, Wake the Others wrestles with the legacy of the Salvadoran Civil War. Blending lyric and narrative, Palomo traces his mother’s childhood, war experiences, family separation, migration, and its aftermath. Political without sacrificing craft, confessional without navel-gazing, this debut collection of poetry guides readers through the quagmire of family secrets to a place where healing is possible.
