Summary

Summary

Vincent Toros new collection takes the Latin American idea of an artistic social gathering (the tertulia) and revises it for the Latinx context in the United States. In verses dense with juxtaposition, these poems examine immigration, economics, colonialism, and race via the sublime imagery of music, visual art, and history. Toro draws from his own social justice work in various U.S. cities to create a kaleidoscopic vision of the connections between the personal and the political, the local and the global, in a book that both celebrates and questions the complexities of the human condition.
