I spent some time at the Los Angeles Times Book Festival this Saturday and picked up Verónica Reyes' Chopper! Chopper! I'm so excited to read this new collection. From what I've read so far, the poems sizzle. Reyes uses the long, muscular line, mixing Spanish-English bien suave.
I also caught readings by Mei Mei Berssenbrugge and Garret Hongo. Super cool!
Really want to catch Harreyette Mullen's reading and presentation Sunday, but couldn't be there. Damn.
