La Llorona on the Longfellow Bridge: Poetry y Otras Movidas

In her introduction, Gaspar de Alba explains that the poems and prose poems here track her travels, physical and metaphorical, between1981-2001. The writing serves as a "bridge" in her life's journey, while "La Llorina is the border."

The poet invites us to travel with her — all we need is an "open palm." (from www. newpages.com)
