From one of Mexico's premier poets, the award-winning Tedi López Mills, a hybrid, genre-defying book of essays following the unusual and surprising complexities of everyday life.

Through thirteen essays, Tedi López Mills explores the minutiae that at first glance go unnoticed. In "Improper Nouns," she explores the history and destiny of an uncomfortable name, asking whether the way we name what surrounds us affects the fabric of its essence. In "How Time Passes, In Consciousness and Outside," one's individual experience of time splits from how it passes outside us. The following essays allude to conscience, pain, private histories, dreams, wisdom, and the most difficult of memories that build one's own identity. Throughout, López Mills traces the trail of her own history, journeying into her own conscience and the mysteries of existence.
