Quiéreme by Juliana Delgado Lopera


There’s really no literal translation of “Quiéreme”; it’s in between “like me” and “love me” but, unlike in English, the verb does all the work—it’s all in one word: a command packed with feeling; a want; a little ball full of longing. And that’s basically what this book is: a little thing full of longing (and essays). In Spanglish. From loving imaginary people in Catholic school, to waiting for a lover’s tears at the airport, to documenting post-breakup grief, Quiéreme is a call on all the lingering ghosts of loving. 

What People Are Saying

“Juliana’s writing is characterized by a fearless hybridity that I have never seen before. She transposes herself onto the page as if it was her second skin. Her stories are written with an urgent viscerality that invites you—commands you—into an intimate relationship with her and her world.”

Virgie Tovar, author, activist and editor of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion (2012)

“Thoughtful, thought provoking, poignant, firece, unrelenting, unapologetic, and with no fucks left to give. This is how I would describe both the writer, Juliana Delgado Lopera, and her writing. They are a force of nature and a necessary presence in these trying times. They are everything that’s right about writing, literature, humanity and resistance. Consider yourself warned!”

Truong Tran, author of four letter words (2008)
