Editorial Reviews

Review

"…beautiful verse graces this book…a topical and fearless debut, taking on the most charged issue in the contemporary political arena: undocumented immigration." --El Paso Times

"Huerta's book is timely, daring and a true testament of how an artist responds to the troubled times. His activism extends beyond verse, which is what a true citizen poet does." --Harriet Blogfrom PoetryFoundation.org

"If you're in the mood for language that poses riddles of identity, that rides on the heat of its own melting, pick up a copy of Some Clarifications y otros poemas. You won't be disappointed." --Southwestern American Literature
