by Alfred Arteaga
is the newest collection of poetry by acclaimed writer
and critic Alfred Arteaga. Written partly in Spanish and partly
in English, these poems move between vivid, sensual impressions
and sophisticated, intellectual wordplay. Life in Hollywood, sex
and relationships, racism and injustice, and the nature of experience
itself are among the themes he addresses in spare and elegant language.
in East Los Angeles, Alfred Arteaga is Associate Professor of Ethnic
Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the recipient
of a National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowship
and a Rockefeller Fellowship. He is the author of Cantos
and Love in the Time of Aftershocks,
both volumes of poetry, House with Blue
Bed, creative nonfiction, and the scholarly works Chicano
Poetics and An Other Tongue.
