After the Death of Anna Gonzales
Terri Fields

Reading this book is like going to a film festival and finding something unexpectedly wonderful. Like well-done short films, Anna Gonzalez takes a very little bit of your time to tell something HUGE. This book is HUGE. I was done with it after 35 minutes but it really, really mattered. Each poem in the collection is aching with concern and reality and youth. Ms. Fields has done an excellent job of shaking her readers right to their cores in exactly one hundred pages. After I read the book all I could think was WOW. Anna Gonzalez is powerful, moving, heart-breaking, and truly beautiful. I feel honored to have shared the world inside this book.

Sex: references to “horizontal communication”

Violence: none

Drugs/Alcohol: Yep, not too bad

Language: Clean
