Review:

“My mother leaning on tiptoe to pick a yellow Lodi apple boomerangs to me when he describes his mother’s pleasure to taste again the manzanitas de San Juan. The same bolt of lightning flashed through the viewfinder of her Brownie camera as his mother’s. ‘Look at them. Just look at them,’ she tells him of the saints before the altar at the church of Las Trampas. And look he does, swaddling what he sees in language as vivid as the dyed-oxblood huarachas that gave his mother her first glimpse of glamour, and in turn puts their family culture in a context by which readers might celebrate difference.”—Amy Wright, Brevity

“Presentimiento is an exploration of place, home, and heritage. Alternating between prose poems and longer essays, weaving in fictionalized vignettes and even incorporating moments of magical realism, Fletcher writes with a mesmerizing love of and attention to the New Mexican landscape.”—Sonja Swift, Eleven Eleven

“In short, Presentimiento is a book to read slowly and reread for the richness of its imagery, the complexity of its portraits, its evocative power, and, finally, its affirmation of the presence of the past.”—Conrad Shumaker, Southwestern American Literature

"In this unusual work of creative nonfiction, the author’s memories spill out like newly discovered treasures. In a narrative framed by his visit to his aging mother in his native New Mexico, Fletcher provides a series of prose poems—some short, some essay-length—inspired by artifacts that his artist mother 'rescued' from the desert and his own explorations of places he heard about in childhood stories."
