About the Author
Carmen Boullosa is the author of twelve volumes of poetry and eighteen novels. Her work has been translated into ten different languages including several books in English. She divides her time between Mexico City and New York, where she is a professor at Macaulay Honors College, CUNY. Lawrence Schimel (New York, 1971) writes in both Spanish and English and has published over 100 books in many different genres-including fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and comics-and for both children and adults. In addition to his own writing, he is a prolific literary translator. He has lived in Madrid, Spain since 1999. Recent book translations into English include the poetry collections: Correspondences: An Anthology of Contemporary Spanish LGBT Poetry (Egales), Destruction of the Lover by Luis Panini (Pleiades Press, 2019), Impure Acts by Ángelo Néstore (Indolent Books, 2019), and I Offer My Heart as a Target by Johanny Vazquez Paz (Akashic, 2019).
Emily Hind: "Boullosa's best texts leave the audience unsettled. " Carlos Monsiváis: Carmen Boullosa poetry is "eminently rational because it answers wholeheartedly to the logic of contemporary poetry. In Boullosa, everything is Literature, and this cult of the word channels verbal intoxication, sets the course of the poetic characters, makes mythologies into background music, incites the heroine to do it, because she hides nothing nor does she wish nor can hide anything."
