***The Mortifications by Derek Palacio

LibraryThing.com ARC 
American Author 

Palacio looks at the psychological complexities of immigration through the eyes of a fictionalized Cuban family divided by their beliefs and nations. He incorporates some Catholic mysticism and magical realism to help illustrate the burden of  loss and longing. Sometimes tedious other times poetic, Palacio is a good writer but requires further editing and refinement to reach the literary goal that lies within his grasp.
