Damien’s first collection (ever, to our knowledge) initiated a career-long obsession with seeing Albuquerque receives its due. Poems about state political history, the importance of lying grandparents, love and Chicano culture create a confident weave of the Duke City, native son to loving mother.
Everyone has their poems written between other poems; Adam just compiled a book of them. In a super-limited run. And sold them only one night. In Arizona.
Meghan was taking the Southwest slam world by storm, and we were there to document it in a book.
