Reviews

"Craig Santos Perez is quite simply writing some of the most significant poetry of the early 21st century. Employing struck-through lists of dead soldiers, fractured diary entries on a return to Guam or shoplifting Vienna Sausages, public comments from Draft Environmental Impact Statements, and searing poems of brevity and heart, Perez is re-mapping a post-colonial America, one pitch-perfect syllable at a time."--Mark Nowak, author of Coal Mountain Elementary "Transmotion" (1/1/2013 12:00:00 AM)
The journeys that we are meant to take through [Perez s] texts are just as much through time and history as they are across oceans in the Pacific. Michael Lujan, Transmotion"

"The journeys that we are meant to take through [Perez's] texts are just as much through time and history as they are across oceans in the Pacific."--Michael Lujan "Transmotion" (4/14/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"This fourth installment in Perez's "from Unincorporated Territory" series marks an important shift in aesthetic strategy and lyric impulse. . . . Perez condenses his overarching sociopolitical concerns, bracketing the story of pregnancy, birth, an uncertain future, and a celebration of new life."--Mark Nowak, author of Coal Mountain Elementary "Publishers Weekly" (1/1/2013 12:00:00 AM)
