Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. Josh Fernandez’s poems come at you with teeth flared—don’t be frightened. From a life of spare parts and dismembered pieces Fernandez puts together a mismatched puzzle that shows a young Latino’s struggle to climb into his own skin. How far does he go, how loud does he get? Very. At other times he comes at you with hand on heart, almost repentant for the sins his struggle has offered. Be frightened—because when he talks in those low tones, he talks of a world gone mad, a world we are all part of, a world fashioned from SPARE PARTS AND DISMEMBERMENT.
“This is a poet to watch, to take serious, to support and love!”—Jimmy Santiago Baca
