Synopsis: Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. In BORN IN THE CAVITY OF SUNSETS, poet Michael Luis Medrano shows us life in Fresno, California, a city where one can never see the actual moment when the sun slips beyond the horizon because too many buildings block the view. The picture he paints is not always pretty. In edgy, sometimes angry verse, Medrano reveals a world of shadow and sacrifice. Never shying away from grim detail, he describes resentment, frustration, struggle, violence, and grief. But he also shows us light, hope, and humor with a wry and refreshing voice. Through it all, he remains sincere and versatile, letting the reader absorb intense emotion, from writhing agony to tender joy. BORN IN THE CAVITY OF SUNSETS is poetry for the people, from the initiated and well versed to the beginner who is just discovering the magic of a well-turned phrase.
Review: "This collection is amazing. It soars, leaps, and also bows down to the earth and its dark bones. What I love about Medrano's work is his sincerity and his touching reach, his tender voices. . . . Medrano is ahead of his cadre. His reach is expansive." -- Juan Felipe Herrera "University of California, Riverside"
