The Mountain in the Sea by Victor Hernandez Cruz

Renowned for his pioneering mixture of both Spanish and English in poetry and prose, Victor Hernández Cruz has now incorporated Arabic language and North African culture into his unique poetic idiom. As Cruz builds poetic bridges between Arab-influenced Spain, Spanish-influenced North Africa, African--influenced Puerto Rico, and an electrified Latino New York, he uncovers the confluence between their various geographies, histories, languages, and mythologies.
