lovely bilingual collection of personal and political poems about what it means to be Puerto Rican in america. Martin Espada's poetry is charming, hilarious and often sad as fuck.

I saw this book cover in the Atlanta Public Library when I was looking for poetry by Nicolas Guillen and was intrigued. I ended up taking Rebellion Is the Circle of a Lover's Hands home and devouring it, so I kept Espada's name in my memory. I should reread this book.
