Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. Translated from the Spanish by Ellen Jones, David McLoghlin and Mary Ellen Stitt. "Like castles of silt and shards, these poems are whimsical and sharp, held together by a smoked rhythmic force of acrobatic associations (sound senses), where ugly is disfigured as beautiful and permanence dissolves into evanescence. Winter's poems won't fall down, no matter how hard you read them."—Charles Bernstein
