Absence, Luminescent (Reprint Edition)
Author: Valerie Martínez
Publisher: Four Way Books (2010)
"Valerie Martínez has written an extraordinary book: these poems are expansive, surprising, intelligent; her subjects are as alive as her language. Her willingness to take risks is uncommon, and so is her compassion; she doesn't shy away from pain, and she lives in the poet's task of praise."
