Poetry. Latino/a Studies. This is the newest volume of poetry from the SUBPRESS COLLECTIVE, a group of poets who have pledged a portion of their income each year to support the eventual publication of all poets in the collective. Torres's poems are visually striking, using a variety of layout and design strategies, but they are equally interesting for the way seemingly-autobiographical moments filter into and through the formal fractures. And Torres does, in fact, have a wicked sense of humor-ous.
Edwin Torres was born in New York City. His books include YES THING NO THING (Roof Books), IN THE FUNCTION OF EXTERNAL CIRCUMSTANCES (Nightboat Books), THE POPEDOLOGY OF AN AMBIENT LANGUAGE (Atelos Books), FRACTURED HUMOROUS (Subpress), and THE ALL-UNION DAY OF THE SHOCK WORKER (Roof Books).Author City: New York, NY USA
