Verónica Baruq returns from a life abroad to the Caribbean island of San Andrés and discovers that she doesn’t truly know who she is or where she’s from. Cristina Bendek’s Salt Crystals, which won the Colombian Elisa Mújica National Novel Prize, guides us on a poignant tour through a region that is rarely depicted with such complexity, seen through the eyes of a woman who is both islander and outsider. Bendek appears in conversation with Lisa Williams.
