Dan Wakefield recommends
City of a Hundred Fires, poems by Richard Blanco: “A stunning first book of poems by a young Cuban-American writer of awesome lyrical talent. This book tells the story of the Cuban-American experience as powerfully as a novel, and speaks to all who appreciate personal insight, irony, and love of language, both English and Spanish.” (Pittsburgh)
