Editorial Reviews


A House Waiting for Music is a remarkable collection of poems. David Hernandez is like a hip, urban William Staffordhis quiet, subtle poems force us to see what we often miss, lost in the rush of our lives. He has a deft touch for finding the striking juxtaposition, the odd fragment of grace. Hernandez embraces the world, even when it seems irredeemable and without mercy, and he celebrates the small daily miracles of survival. The music of these warm, intimate poems resonates, and lingers.""Jim Daniels --Review

About the Author

David Hernandez was born in Burbank, CA in 1971. His first passion was drawing. On the unpainted walls of the playroom, he expressed himself with a box of crayons. His love of art continued on through college at California State University, Long Beach, and it was here that his infatuation with poetry began, earning a BA in Creative Writing. He works full-time as a web designer, but still carves out time to write. His poems have appeared in The Southern Review, Prairie Schooner, Cream City Review, Quarterly West, Alaska Quarterly Review, and Mississippi Review. His drawings have also appeared in literary magazines, including Other Voices, Gargoyle, and a feature in Indiana Review. A recipient of a grant from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation, his previous chapbook collections include Man Climbs Out of Manhole (Pearl Editions) and Donating the Heart (Pudding House Publications), winner of the National Looking Glass Chapbook Competition. David is married to writer Lisa Glatt. Their collection of collaborative poems, A Merciful Bed, was published by Pearl Editions.
