Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In 'Mis amigas,' 'Nevada,' and other poems, the poet explores the stereotypical roles of women (prostitution, frigidity, the social rites of puberty, the pretentiousness of the burguesa) and subverts them with dark undercurrents of pain, anger, and the arcane knowledge of their inauthenticity."  —Americas Review
