Poetry. Christina Olivares's debut collection NO MAP OF THE EARTH INCLUDES STARS, the 2014 Marsh Hawk Press Poetry Prize, establishes her as one of the most adventurous young poets writing today. In probing, honest chronicles of imagined lives and lived situations across urban and tropical geographies, Olivares shines constellations of light on her vibrant experiences, home and abroad, in the mind and in the heart, in and out of this world. NO MAP OF THE EARTH INCLUDES STARS showcases the itinerary of a poet not so much pushing boundaries as transcending them.

Review:

These are brave and searing poems, reconciling and healing deep divisions of mind, culture, spirit, lenguas tongues, language. Gathering into herself shards of angels, the sky on fire, the sea s wept, wild singing, a daughter petitions (pleads, prays, prepares a legal brief) for her paranoid, holy, homeless, violent, radiant, exiled family member. A woman weathers the body s thunderstorms, love s contradictions a river who flows against her own current; presides heartachingly over the scene of instruction where children learn what a border is and are shown no map of the world/ includes stars. --L. S. Asekoff

Read this book aloud and remember how, through one s life, we often lay awake through nights, walk eagerly through our days, looking for answers to echo back with the honesty of Christina Olivares' No Map of the Earth Includes Stars. Turn off the news on your local channel; the story behind the news speaks here with a "grasp at the fading bright thing the fading song...you are changed forever...; And we re changed for the better. This is the kind of collection you ll read multiple times, hoping the wisdom will sink in, and then you ll seek others who know that the "mind unfolds/ expands/ falls away, a star. --A. Van Jordan
