BETWEEN DEATH & FLIGHT by Charlie D'Aniello Trigueros
[From the warning lines lit EIC]
BETWEEN DEATH & FLIGHT is an epistolary creative nonfiction book that follows a transmasculine, Latino teenager's stay in a US ICE detention center for undocumented children, following an escape from his home country due to transphobic violence. Fictionalized and told primarily through journal-style entries, the story explores the author's confinement, stripping of freedom, and existence as an inherently transgressive self.
