Currently, Juan Morales is my professor. I picked his book up after Juan read a few poems for the class. To this day, his writing has been very inspirational. He writes from the heart, weaving his poems from tales told to him through his family. He writes of places and events in a way that the reader can feel as if they are really there, and thats what I got from this collection. Any reader can read the passion he has while reading his poems. I truly enjoyed reading his work.

I was lent a small stack of books published by a local press. I started with this one because I liked the title. It is quite good. I absolutely loved the first two sections of the book. The subject matter is unusual, the rhythm is right, the imagery is beautiful. A fantastic first book of poetry. I will be on the look out for his next.

3.5. I enjoyed this collection though these very much felt like prose, plain spoken and each telling a specific story from family lore. Most of these are from the viewpoint of a shifting cast of family members and when the poet appears he is an observer more than anything.
