Be the first person you know to get a signed copy!!!
Mara Catalán’s first monograph, Williamsburg, A Place I Once Called Home, is a coming-of-age story of a Spanish immigrant who moved to New York in 1990 and stayed. Living in Manhattan from day to day, with little money and no concrete plan, Mara eventually found a cheap place to live and people who cared for her in Williamsburg, an industrial neighborhood in decline, across the bridge in Brooklyn. Williamsburg, A Place I Once Called Home is Mara’s personal record of her life there between the years of 1994 and 1996. With a distinctive style, she beautifully weaves B&W urban landscapes, intimate portraits, and lyrical street scenes with stories, personal letters, and diary entries in both Spanish and English. This book is her ode to what it once was, a place she once called home.
