This [book] will stay with me for an eternity . . . Simply divine . . . I urge you to buy it, settle in on a quiet, rainy afternoon, and allow the words to flow freely over you and through you, for Ima and Coli Are The Tree That Was Never a Seed will free you from your, perhaps, spiritually cloistered being early on.-- "Exclusive Magazine"
In this poetry collection, published in Spanish and in English, Pérez-Cortés spins images of his hometown of Colima, Mexico: ancient, pre-Hispanic Colima and Colima today. The tree in the book's title becomes a character in its own right, as it dances in and out of these poems.-- "Alta Magazine"
Winner of the National Poetry Series Paz Prize for Poetry, Pérez-Cortés's collection pays homage to his hometown of Colima, Mexico, and celebrate nature and place.-- "Publishers Weekly, included in Poetry Adult Announcements for Fall 2021"
