Josh Fernandez’s poems come at you with teeth flared – don’t be frightened. From a life of spare parts and dismembered pieces Fernandez puts together a mismatched puzzle that shows a young Latino’s struggle to climb into his own skin. How far does he go, how loud does he get? Very. At other times he comes at you with hand on heart, almost repentant for the sins his struggle has offered. Be frightened – because when he talks in those low tones, he talks of a world gone mad, a world we are all part of, a world fashioned from Spare Parts and Dismemberment.

Josh Fernandez was born in Denver, raised in Boston and Metro-California, and now lives and works in Midtown Sacramento. He writes for Spin, Boulder Weekly, San Antonio Current, and the Sacramento News & Review. Among other assignments, he has worked the crime beat for several area newspapers. His poetry is widely published and he continues to be a sought after reader and speaker—often asked to talk about ethnic diversity, abuse and addiction, and his background as a writer and poet. In recovery, Fernandez deals with his own demons.Review:
I am very, very excited about Josh's poetry. I can't wait to see his work bloom, spread, shoot up, and root down through the days and years ahead. This is a poet to watch, to take serious, to support and love! --Jimmy Santiago Baca - author of A Glass Of Water
Fernandez tells us what it is to be young, flipping tortillas and wanting more. In the tradition of Huck Finn, he is very much an Americano storyteller, a storyteller whose poems I treasure. --José Montoya - The Royal Chicano Air Force - Poet, Artist, Educator
