NATURAL TAKEOVER OF SMALL THINGS.
Edition: First printing, a trade paperback original.
Tucson: University of Arizona Press, (2013). SIGNED first edition - A collection of poetry by this award-winning writer which "offers an unflinching view of 'Californias Heartland,' the San Joaquin Valley.. . The book opens with an image of Fresno as 'the inexhaustible nerve/in the twitching leg of a dog/three hours after being smashed/beneath the retread wheel/of a tomato truck en route to/a packing house that was raided/by the feds just days before the harvest.' It ends with 'Adios, Fresno,' an astringent farewell to the city: 'You can keep your fields,/the sun will follow me./I wont reconsider./Ive overstayed my welcome/by three generations'." SIGNED and dated in 2014 on the title page. A title in the Camino del Sol series. Cover praise from Amy Gerstler, Diana Garcia and others. 68 pp. ISBN: 978-0816530120.
