    1. Yepez, in his sparse English output, is wildly confrontational and flippantly allusive. It's like, an aggressive mixture of sprezzatura and machismo that may or may not put you off within the first couple of paragraphs. This collection is a series of prose poems about sex and identity that is perhaps a bit appropriative in terms of gender and perhaps not appropriative enough in terms of class, however, it ends in a scene of post-9/11 jeremiad and euphoric gay incest that is as strange and beauti [...]

    2. Heriberto Yepez is the most exciting poet I have read (probably) ever. This is his first book written in English. He has written 20-something books in Spanish, and he's in his mid-thirties. He is doing work that is unpresedented.
