Description - So Often the Pitcher Goes to Water Until It Breaks by Rigoberto Gonzalez

An astonishing new talent, Rigoberto Gonzlez writes with a clarity of the senses that pulls the reader into a marvelous and unfamiliar world. The sidewalk preacher, the umbrella salesman, the nurse on the graveyard shift, the professional mourner - all allow Gonzlez a clandestine glimpse of their lives. Crackling with the dry electricity of the desert and flashing with the brilliant colors of Mexico, Gonzlez's poems are rooted in the fertile soil beneath poverty's dust, the border's violence, and longing's desolation.

Buy So Often the Pitcher Goes to Water Until It Breaks by Rigoberto Gonzalez from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
