Summary
Kali Fajardo-Anstine's magnetic story collection breathes life into her Indigenous Latina characters and the land they inhabit. Set against the remarkable backdrop of Denver, Colorado-a place that is as fierce as it is exquisite-these women navigate the land the way they navigate their lives- with caution, grace, and quiet force.

In "Sugar Babies," ancestry and heritage are hidden inside the earth, but have the tendency to ascend during land disputes. "Any Further West" follows a sex worker and her daughter as they leave their ancestral home in southern Colorado only to find a foreign and hostile land in California. In "Tomi," a woman returns home from prison, finding herself in a gentrified city that is a shadow of the one she remembers from her childhood. And in the title story, "Sabrina & Corina," a Denver family falls into a cycle of violence against women, coming together only through ritual.

Sabrina & Corina is a moving narrative of unrelenting feminine power and an exploration of the universal experiences of abandonment, heritage, and an eternal sense of home.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Latina and Indigenous American women who long to be seen and see themselves are the beating heart of the stories in Fajardo-Anstine's rich and radiant debut. Many of their parents aren't around, and the pleas of their elders to go to church once in a while are mostly ignored, but they lean on one another. Dead or dying loved ones people many of these tales; the dazzling title story launches with woozy velocity as a makeup artist heeds her grandmother's wish that she beautify her dead cousin for funeral viewing. In Sugar Babies, a class assignment to parent a bag of sugar as if it's a human baby makes a girl question what she's inherited from her own young mother. After her release from prison, a woman tries to stop messing up and earns the respect of her young nephew in Tomi. Galapago finds a woman, forced by crime to leave her longtime home in a gentrifying neighborhood, feeling ashamed that even in her old age, she wanted to live more than die. Sharing her characters' southern Colorado homelands, Fajardo-Anstine imbues her stories with a strong sense of place and the infinite unseen generations that coexist in even single moments.--Annie Bostrom Copyright 2019 Booklist"
