Dionisia Morales is a native New Yorker who resettled in the West, a circumstance that sometimes sparks an identity crisis relative to geography, family, and tradition. The essays collected in Homing Instincts explore how our conceptions of home play out in our daily lives as we navigate the gap between where we are and the stories we tell ourselves about where we think we belong. These are questions posed by migrations of any scale – whether we are moving across town or around the world. Homing Instincts shows that we are all newcomers, in one regard or another.
