For the City that Nearly Broke Me

for the city

Aztlan Libre Press, an independent Xican@ press based out of San Antonio, Texas, announces the release of our fourth publication, For the City that Nearly Broke Me, by Barbara Jane Reyes.

For the City that Nearly Broke Me is the inaugural publication in Aztlan Libre Press’Indigenous Voices Series. The Indigenous Voices Series will publish important literary, artistic and cultural works by other American Indians and World Indigenous Voices.

“In this fierce, feisty, anaphora-filled shakedown serenade, Reyes hard-scrambles our senses to position us firmly in poetry meant to electro-charge our attention real. This is a fine book of verse, reminiscent of Juan Felipe Herrera, yet singly Reyes. The supple lines ring endless rounds, bringing us bits of battle-singing and words wound true.” –Allison A. Hedge Coke, author of Dog Road Woman.

Purchase For the City That Nearly Broke Me at Aztlan Libre Press or SPD Books.
