Reviews / Endorsements

“Maurice Kilwein Guevara ... gives us a book that is part memoir, part poetry collection and part surrealistic vision of what it is to have one foot in North America and one in South. ...As the voice of a man caught between cultures, this is a quintessentially American book. ...To be American, Guevara implies, is to live here but to be connected elsewhere.”—Michael Simms, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“With a magical naturalism that refuses to separate the local from the global, Maurice Kilwein Guevara's Autobiography of So-and-so: Poems in Prose holds our eye close to the Western wound: where cultures mix only by bleeding into each other. These prose chronicles reconfigure fixed assumptions about self and enter a threshold past which facts are as haunted as nightmares and consensual reality has become a waking dream. . . . The upshot: a troubling beauty that gets at the difficult news with perpetual newness and hope.”—William Olsen
