Half the World in Light(University of Arizona Press)
by Juan Felipe Herrera
Library Journal Herrera has been honing his writing for 40 years, through 12 collections, so it's hardly surprising that it's so deep. Just how deep is for you to discover: open a page and your heart will break, or you'll bask in the wordplay, or you'll be charged by powerful political statement. This leading Chicano poet has something to tell us all; a cowinner of the NBCC poetry award. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
