A rich collection of poetry that celebrates the experience of contemporary Latinos and Latinas. Here we find the open expression of anger and grief, self-mocking humor, protest, quiet assertion of dignity, and raucous celebration. Among the poets represented are former farm workers and gang members, a practicing physician, an ex-tenant lawyer, a professional chef, a Vietnam veteran, and more. 128 pp.
