Encantado : Desert Monologues, Hardback Book

Encantado : Desert Monologues Hardback

Part of the Camino del Sol series


Inspired by Edgar Lee Masters's Spoon River Anthology and Thornton Wilder's Our Town, Pat Mora brings us the poetic monologues of Encantado, an imagined southwestern town.

Each poem forms a story that reveals the complex and emotional journeys we take through life.

Mora meanders through the thoughts of Encantado's residents-the mothers and sisters, brothers and fathers in whom we see slivers of ourselves and our loved ones-and paints a portrait of a community through its inhabitants' own diverse voices.

Even the river has a voice we understand. Inspired by both the real and imagined stories around her, Mora transports us to the heart of what it means to join in a chorus of voices.

A community. A town. Encantado.
