Editorial Reviews

Review

"... groundbreaking in that it bridges the politics surrounding race, gender, sexuality, class, and questions prevailing definitions of Latino masculinity." -- riodesoul.com

"His poetry is . . . comic and profound, and bursting with a politic which transcends the polemic, transmuting anger into vision." -- www.QueerReads.com

. . . a wrinkled yet sentimental world perilously eroding like the piers themselves where Emanuel created himself. . . loud and daring. . . extreme and exuberant. -- KEITH ROACH, Nuyorican Poets Cafe

Once in a generation, a new voice emerges that makes us see the world in a dazzling new light. Emanuel Xavier is that kind of writer. . . exciting. . . vibrant. . . unique. . . a visionary bard. -- JAIME MANRIQUE, author of TWILIGHT AT THE EQUATOR

Format: Paperback
"Tradiciones" and "Bushwick Bohemia" are the bomb. Overall, this is a jagged collection of poems which display the author's strengths and weaknesses. Yet, this is what makes his writing real and universal. Xavier's simple words come straight from the heart with the audacity to keep it real.

I FINALLY got my hands on this book after reading "Christ-Like." I laughed, I cried, I loved it! I look forward to anything Xavier publishes. He is too fierce!
