Who made you care about poetry in 2013? Maybe it was one of the same people who made JD Scott care? Switchback authors Marisa Crawford and Jennifer Tamayo made his list; did they make yours? Who made you want to pass heart-o-grams this year? Who lept from the page, "rhapsodic . . . deliciously surly."?

Read the article: "23 More People Who Made Me Care About Poetry in 2013 (From One of The Million  People Who Will Make Your Care About Poetry in 2013)".

Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. Art. Memoir. In this bold and energetic debut, temporal malapropisms become purposeful play through Tamayo's poetics of code switching and homophonics. As Tamayo tackles the frustrations of the transnational immigrant experience, language "mistakes" become "missed aches" and she writes mother and mother-tongue into one as "mouth her." A red thread intrudes throughout this frenetic mixed-genre assemblage, suturing identity to the page by erasing text, embroidering images, and stitching collage together. Cathy Park Hong, 2010 Gatewood Prize judge, promises the "brash, political, and bracingly original" [RED MISSED ACHES] will "startle you awake and demand your attention." 
 

You can buy it from SPD here or from Switchback here.
