About This Dirty Little Heart:

"These poems are works of immediately evident force. The telling in them is everything, and the voice that speaks them is new. Never regular, the language is itself part of the story. . . . These are poems born of what stays with us, from those raw things that are, quite simply, beyond memory."
—Alberto Ríos
