Buena Suerte in Red Glitter resonates with the spiritual and secular hunger of a Johnny Cash album. Craven’s poetry roams the raw edge of suburban Los Angeles, raising a full glass in the transcendent haze of the bars of Manhattan. Inflamed with intoxication, loss, longing, visceral anger and celebration, Craven’s poems launch the reader on a journey forward. These lyric and prose narratives should fill the jukebox in your corner bar and be played loud on a Saturday night.
