Format: Paperback
Coming of age in Los Angeles is explored in this excellent first book of poems from Ruben Quesada. This book tackles big issues of what it means to be a person in the world today. There is love, loss, beauty and grace in this book. It's a must read!

I had him for a teacher and a copy of this book was hanging on his door. I also didn't understand the poetry he was having us read and to make a long story short, I dropped his class. But his book was actually an alright book, he writes very much in the style of Wallace Stevens who bores me to death.
