Much like the star, Vega is a dazzling light for those who struggle with grief, depression, and loss. Written by poet and publisher Christina Vega, this sophomore poetry collection centers the Chicana experience amid the rippling effects of unexpected loss within multigenerational families, strained familial dynamics, and reconnecting with ancestral ties. Vega is a book about finding power within liminality, rather than a path away from it.
This short but impassioned speech by writer, radical feminist, and activist Audre Lorde is about self-actualization, the power of language, and what happens if we sit back and allow others to take charge of our stories. Originally delivered at a commencement ceremony for college graduates in the twentieth century, Difference and Survival returns to deliver the same life-changing message to today’s readers: the stories we tell ourselves have the power to change our lives. This is a limited edition, recycled, and handcrafted chapbook.

Vega sends readers down a path of memories, dreams, and warnings, asking them to witness the liminality of borderland existence. The poems in this collection, whether by omission, change, or preservation, illuminate Vega’s lived experiences as their queerness, cultural frameworks, and home drift toward and away from borderlands.

Less Desolate was fully…
