Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An astonishing new talent, Rigoberto Gonzalez writes with a clarity of the senses that pulls the reader into a marvelous and unfamiliar world. The sidewalk preacher, the umbrella salesman, the nurse on the graveyard shift, the professional mourner — all allow Gonzalez a clandestine glimpse of their lives. Crackling with the dry electricity of the desert and flashing with the brilliant colon of Mexico, Gonzalez's poems are rooted in the fertile soil beneath poverty's dust, the borders violence, and longing's desolation.
