  • I don't usually like to read long, narrative poems. Actually, I don't usually like modern poetry, period.This is haunting, redemptive, powerful, and meaningful in a larger political context.


  • This was a very enjoyable book, and I wish more authors attempted to write in this poetic manner. It was an easy read, yet insightful and beautiful. The language was so descriptive, it sometimes shocked and other times awed me. The story is just humbling. I don't want to be a spoiler so I am going to leave my review at that. I look forward to reading other similar works.


  • Two interrelated books of narrative poetry. The first, semi-autobigraphical is Santiago-Baca at his absoloute best, tracking the life of a "detribalized Indian"/Chicano boy abandoned by his parents, putting his life back together piece by piece. The second, good but not on quiet the same level, picks up the protagonist following the burning of the house he'd built as symbol of his rebuilt life--mostly a gallery of portraits of life in the Southwest. Both excellent, Martin absolutely essential.


  • This book lives like a leafed box of live cultured bacteria on the pages which Jimmy has preciously penned his existence. He's a survivor, a poet, a man and a testament that people do at times transcend beyond their abandonment. These words are alive and are viewable for the reader looking to witness the poetic testimony of one writing force named Jimmy Santiago Baca.


  • it was very FINE, i read it & felt i had little to say about it. then i managed to write a 1200-word post for class about it, as one does. it's most interesting on the level of local mythmaking. kind of the sort of personal poem i'm least interested in, but at least not as straightforward as it could be.


  • While I was in school in Oregon we watched a video of this author reading his poetry. It was about the need for men to cry, which doesn't strike me now as anything to write home about. But I did write home, that very day, and told my Ma: "Mama, I'm into Baca."


  • One of my favorite collections of wholly unique poetry. It really captures the southwest, the poverty, the aimlessness, and the transcendent possibilities of existence - unlikely bedfellows, to be sure, but that's why the book is so awesome


  • Incredible poetry-even for those who don't like poetry. I believe it was written while the author was in prison.


  • Blew me away! Baca is not for the weak of heart. If you want happy endings, look elsewhere. He lived through a lot of shit and says it like it is! LOVE!


  • Based in the city I live in but decades prior to now, it was interesting to see another side. This book was dark but written beautifully. A quick read.
