TALK SHOWS by Monica de la Torre

I really can't express how exciting this book is. It's long-awaited and long overdue. De la Torre is about as smart as you can get about the ways different languages--Spanish, English, body, public, private, TV, radio, whatever--meet up and get kinda confusing at the crossroads. She's also funny as hell, aesthetically challenging, and always thinking about the ways a poem can make meaning. This really should be one of the books poetry people are talking about this year.
