Oscar Cásares recommends
Keep Saying Their Names (2020)
Simon Stranger
"An utterly moving story, reminding us how in the end all we have are the names of those who came before us and the memories attached to those names. Rippling across generations, Keep Saying Their Names is as haunting for its characters as it will be for its readers."
