Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. L. Luis Lopez's fourth collection of poems returns to the barrio in Albuquerque where the author grew up in the 1940's and 1950's. Each poem is a glimpse into the neighborhood characters who came and went from the small supermarket where he worked as a 'sack boy'. With great simplicity the poems move from remembered description into small but vital illuminations of the important things in life.
L. Luis Lopez is a professor emeritus from Colorado Mesa University. He is the author of four books of poetry, Musings of a Barrio Sack Boy (Writers Digest Award, 2000), A Painting of Sand (2000), Each Month I Sing (American Book Award and First Place in Poetry from CIPA), and Andromeda to Vulpecula: 88 Constellation Poems (2014).
