The Twelve-Foot Neon Woman Paperback / softback
Against a soundtrack of world musicfrom salsa to reggae and jazzand in a vibrant blend of English, Spanish, and Patois, this collection delivers tender and incendiary hymns of homage to the Caribbean, American, and British metropolises.
In a poetic form that is lyrical, narrative, sensual, and often experimental, it offers insight into the urgent social issues impacting the everyday world and its extraordinary people.
As they seek connections across boundaries of geography, race, ethnicity, language, gender, age, and economic class, these poems express a hope for the future and the possibility for cultural metamorphosis."
