Espada's work here speaks to the experiences of immigrants and Hispanic Americans in America, in work and living and politics. Built from historical realities and memorable characters, the collection documents justice and injustice with conversational poems that are both memorable and easily accessable. Espada's use of loaded images is masterful, and the language here is extraordinarily powerful and graceful throughout. For any reader of poetry, this book is well worth the time---Espada's poetry is something to experience.
