“If you’re ever lost in the beguiling and fractured translation of being Latin@ in America, Sheila Maldonado’s ONE-BEDROOM SOLO is just the book you need. These poems bring you into a conversation that is drop-dead funny and cunningly tragic. Maldonado draws a self-portrait in an active mirror; an x-ray of love, despair, homeland, and good ole’ signifyin’. ONE-BEDROOM SOLO is a memorable first collection.”—Willie Perdomo

$20 and up on Amazon. Exquisite Poop combines the names for two communication games, Exquisite Corpse and Ipupyukat (Eat Poop You Cat). Inspired by the different descriptions Steve Cannon’s visitors would give of the art on the walls, and by taking the blind professor to art openings, the curator organized an elaborate art and writing project in blind reproduction between over two dozen artists and writers.The artists were invited to contribute a small two-dimensional work, and commit to another. Images, titles, size and media information were then assigned to the writers, who were charged with describing the art as thoroughly and sincerely as possible. These descriptions were nearly randomly assigned to the contributing artists, who were tasked with recreating the artwork they thought the writer had described, without knowing the artist or seeing the original image.
