A testimony of sexuality in times of violence, this journey into the intimate language of the male body is freighted with danger and desire and expressed through a dark eroticism reminiscent of Garcia Lorca and Cavafy. "A brilliant poet of two nations, he is a treasure found"--Sandra McPherson. Rigoberto Gonzalez is the author of four books--So Often the Pitcher Goes to Water Until It Breaks (a 1998 National Poetry Series selection), two bilingual children's books, and a novel, Crossing Vines, which was a ForeWord Magazine Fiction Book of the Year. Gonzalez is a Guggenheim Fellow and a member of PEN and the National Book Critics Circle. He is an associate professor of English and Latino studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a contributing editor to Poets & Writers magazine.
