    I can't wait ...

    I can't wait for this to hit the shelves. I haven't read it yet, but I know U. Noel to be a brilliant poet and a brilliant critic, on the cutting edge of code-switching verse that does far more than simply glorify its own bilinguism(s) and neologisms. Las flores del Mall, anyone?
