Description


Registro epistolar del movimiento de una mujer hacia la felicidad en la comunidad negra de la costa del Pac fico colombiana.

Velia Vidal vuelve a su hogar en Choc , a la comunidad afro-colombiana, a su familia, al mar. Es aqu donde el Pac fico se encuentra con el Caribe, y donde ella se establece nuevamente. Aguas de estuario expone un lado de una correspondencia que se extiende durante a os, documentando la vuelta al hogar, y su trabajo para construir un centro literario, una carrera en la escritura, y un festival con y para la gente del lugar. Pero es tambi n una reivindicaci n de su apuesta por la felicidad; un registro de su inmersi n en los pueblos, r os y bosques que conforman sus ra ces; una redefinici n de su relaci n con el sexo y el amor en tiempo real; una perspectiva sobre c mo crear algo (para la comunidad, para una misma) es una forma de abrirse paso, a trav's de la lectura y la escritura, hacia un lugar conocido y una nueva identidad.

An epistolary, fictional account of one woman moving towards happiness in the black community of Colombia's Pacific coast.

After a long absence, Vel has come home to Choc - to the Afro-Colombian community, to her family, to the sea. This is where the Pacific meets the Caribbean, where she's establishing herself anew. And the record she keeps is a series of letters to a friend, clarifying for herself where she stands, as she describes that homecoming to another. Vel works to build a literary centre, writing career, and festival with and for the people there. But her return to Choc is also a claim-staking of her decision to pursue happiness now; an account of her immersion in the towns and rivers and forests she came from; and a redefinition of her relationship to sex and love in real time. And Tidal Waters is a vision of how creating something (for your community, for yourself) is a way of reading and writing your way into a known place and a new self.
