Reyes is able to take a look at the American culture surrounding war from an outsider's point of view. She takes on several different voices throughout the work, from a white American male to an Asian woman, yet through use of irony each speaks from her own perspective. The ideas that she shares are powerful, and leave the reader pondering issues of racism and war. If you like poems that make you question your own culture, then this a good read.

Format: Paperback
This book overwhelmed me with its beauty and tremulous dance between worlds. Althouough I can only read English with any real understanding, I delighted in the texture and aesthetic richness of the untranslated bits contained herein. This immediately became an important book to myself as a poet. One of the best collections of recent years. I look forward eagerly to Reyes' future work.
