From Library Journal
Espada, a lawyer of Puerto Rican descent, here continues the denunciatory message of his two previously published collections. These 34 short poems, about half of which have already seen publication in literary journals, document the victimization of downtrodden and alienated Hispanics. Universalized, this victimization ultimately reflects the plight of all oppressed minorities. The combative, oppositional free verse, tinged with sardonic humor, provides the appropriate medium for the politically activist tone. This bilingual edition, with a facing Spanish version translated from the original English in collaboration with the author, is suitable for American ethnic literature, especially Nuyorican collections.

"Astonishingly bold young poet." --The New York Times Book Review
"Without ever relying on abstractions such as 'racism' or 'poverty', [Marín Espada] brings the reader face to face with these conditions by showing us the human tissue these terms so often mask." --Bloomsbury Review
