Ana, an undocumented Mexican worker in the United States desperately wants to become a citizen. But her only hope is to buy herself a green card marriage. In this quiet, intense and beautifully observed story, Melissa Lozada-Oliva cracks open the immigration wall to reveal one the system’s most debilitating absurdities: the enforced, hypocritical "white wedding." Melissa Lozada-Oliva was born in Boston to parents who met in an English as Second Language class. She studies English and Journalism at Simmons College in Boston. Her riveting debut novella Ana del Rio is available in our Bookstore.
