This is the first full-length book of Alberto Blanco's poems presented bilingually in over ten years. Eight immensely talented translators (Judith Infante, Joan Lindgren, Elise Miller, Edgardo Moctezuma, Gustavo V. Segade, Anthony Seidman, John Oliver Simon, Kathleen Snodgrass)worked in perfect unison to bring the pages of this selected text together. Those unfamiliar with Blanco's work will be delighted at his amazement with things as he writes and how much he involves you in the spirit of the place, the person or the object with which he is having a pure association.
