The Lesser Tragedy of Death (Black Goat) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[A] brave and moving tribute to a brother gone astray; with skill, unflinching honesty, and redemptive compassion, Cristina García tracks his marvelous, complex, and errant life. . . . These poems are the beautiful, painful, astonishing result of a journey to hell and back in search of the brother she loves. With this first book of poems, García, one of our best novelists and storytellers, proves herself to be a talented poet as well."—Julia Alvarez, author of Saving the World

Cristina García is the author of several novels—including Dreaming in Cuban—anthologies, and books for young readers. A National Book Award nominee, she is also a visiting professor and Black Mountain Institute teaching fellow in creative writing at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Synopsis:

The highly anticipated debut poetry collection from the best-selling author of Dreaming in Cuban.
