The Saints of Streets
In Luisa A. Igloria's newest poetry book The Saints of Streets, hungry ghosts, mullahs, would-be assassins, carnival queens, Hell Girl, Dante riding Geryon's back, and a host of other figures guide us through the dioramas and exhibits of personal and collective memory: they'll be our chauffeurs, psychopomps, tourist guides, our sweet and difficult familiars. These poems are love letters, phone calls disrupting our day to remind us of the strange and beautiful mysteries of living in the postcolonial moment. [Amazon.com]
