Christian Aldana's debut poetry collection, The Water We Swim In, is an ode to radical care. Through community organizing and deeply held love, Aldana follows in the footsteps of Grace Lee Boggs against a carceral state. They champion safety for all who need it while challenging the waters of our time, this state in which protection is needed. Aldana questions the broken system and shows us an alternative future well within our grasp. As she gives to others, she also gives to herself, allowing space for grief, acknowledging the distances between us in the diaspora. Unapologetically queer and neurodivergent, Aldana's writing exudes power and teaches us we will never drown as long as we have each other. Empowering, mobilizing, and unrelenting, The Water We Swim In is a poetic revolution, a manifesto for all who believe in fighting for more.
