Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. Translated from the Spanish by Rosa Alcalá and Mónica de la Torre. "Lila Zemborain brings into relationship the viscera of the body and the spill of the universe in tense compositions that blur distinctions between lyric and prose poetry, between science and eros."—Forrest Gander
"Alcalá and de la Torre's deft and calm translations offer a superb guide into the hanging gardens of a new, and very old, poetic landscape."—Jonathan Skinner
