Poetry. Multi-awarded poet Luis H. Francia offers a new poetry collection, Museum of Absences, a book out of Francia's insistent sense ofthe void that haunts our lives, whether because of politics, faith, history, or personal circumstance. The book introduces a wide arrayof personae, from a Filipino old-timer looking back on a life of invisibility to Cinderella in middle age, and from a grandson communingwith deceased grandparents to a New Yorker responding to the horror of "9/11." Nick Carbo says, "Luis H. Francia's themes of love,loss, and redemption weave through the collection with the expert hand of a Stephane Mallarme or a Federico Fellini."
