Publisher commentary:


Alberto Ríos’s first book of poems, Whispering to Fool the Wind, won the Walt Whitman prize and his book of short stories won the Western States Book Award for Fiction.  Donald Justice has said of Ríos, “Whoever reads through this work must be impressed, as I was, by the power the most natural-seeming and casual image has, to transform and illuminate in the hands of a true poet.”  Ríos’s poetry owes much to the fact that his English uniquely contains more than a memory of Spanish.
