Annotation: Born in the south of Chile, but living and writing in the U.S. for the past thirty years, Raul Barrientos eludes the easy categories: Latin American, Latino, American. All of these, and more. Yet always a poet, turning whatever he touches into startling imagery and gritty, enduring verse. These poems trace a trajectory from the 1973 coup d'etat in Chile to a difficult end-of-millennium in Manhatten. They give the reader a privileged view of a long and continually productive career in poetry--and a glimpse of the life behind it.
