Novella: On the Flight Patterns of Some Exotic Birds 
The year is 2021. Irene, born in Oaxaca, Mexico, lives in Baltimore with her husband and two daughters. The story of how she came to live in this American city is a strange, complicated one told in crystalline fragments. Irene’s is a story about love and betrayal, about youth, about hours spent training in bright blue swimming pools, about the ways we react to grief and how those reactions coincide and multiply over time and distance.
