Furia: Poems

Furia: Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In Menes's sensual, vivid poems drawing on his Peruvian, Cuban, Chinese heritage and childhood in South Florida, maids serve monkeys for dinner, school-boy thugs wield knives and frogs fall from the sky.

Synopsis:

This eye-opening and exotic new poetry collection tells a story in a way that few books of poetry do. Filled with colors, textures, tastes, and beautifully crafted language, these sensual poems recall the author's Peruvian/Cuban ancestry and his childhood in Peru and Florida, taking the reader on a journey full of delights — and dangers. There are maids who serve monkeys for dinner, elementary-school thugs wielding knives, and frogs falling from the sky, as Furia confronts issues of race, culture, and identity and portrays the world's vastness and diversity — as well as its simple pleasures.
