Winner, 1994 Thorpe Menn Award for Literary Achievement This collection explores the disparity between promises and reality, especially as seen by Hispanic Americans from the time of Columbus to the present. "This collection introduces a newcomer whose voice i particularly sustained and developed. Vando's is a universal voice expressing childhood anguish and passion." Publishers Weekly "...these intense poems explode like flares above a battlefield of the heart to reveal a geography of the impossible." Library Journal
