Rhina P. Espaillat, judge of the 2014 Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize, describes Furious Dusk, David Campos’s winning collection, as "a work whose five parts trace a son’s efforts—only partially successful—to fulfill his father’s expectations and—perhaps even more difficult—understand those expectations enough to forgive them.” The poet's reflections are catalyzed by learning of his father’s impending death, which, in turn, forces him to examine his father’s expectations against his own evolving concept of what it means to be a man.

Pity the Drowned Horses is the winner of the first Andres Montoya Poetry Prize. This collection is about place, and many of its poems are set in the desert southwest on the U.S./Mexico border. Sheryl Luna's poems are also about family and home within the broader context of the border as both a bridge and a barrier. They deal with the bilingual and bicultural city and how a place is longed for and viewed very differently as the observer changes and experiences other cultures. The first two sections of poems focus on home and family. They show that, despite poverty and geographical isolation, the border towns of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez are places of beauty and promise. The third section explores cultures and the ways in which anxiety over aesthetic judgments, values, and difference is negotiated. The final section is one of praise and the recognition that despite differences we are all longing for faith and a place to call home.

"A brilliant poet of two nations, he is a treasure found."-Sandra McPherson A testimony of sexuality in times of violence, this journey into the intimate language of the male body is freighted with danger and desire and expressed through a dark eroticism reminiscent of Garcia Lorca and Cavafy. "Breads That Hunger" Acirc; I make love to a man with a button fetish. Correction: a man makes love to my shirt. He yanks each piece of plastic with his teeth and swallows it, then inserts the cusp of his tongue into the buttonhole. I slip out of the sleeves and off the bed and he scarcely notices. Later, he comes looking for me; my shirt slumped across his shoulder. It looks as if I have shed my skin-the fantasy of meeting the train on the rusty tracks comes to life. Buttonless, I have been stripped of everything that holds me together. He tells me he can replace the shirt. I tell him he can keep me.

The emotionally raw, self-reflective imagery of the paintings of FRIDA KAHLO. The highly emotive, enchanting allure of the poetry of MARIA R. PALACIOS. At last, the sexually charged energies and passions of their largely indistinguishable muses meet within these pages. Color into words, death to life, "Dressing Skeletons: A Poetic Tribute to Frida Kahlo" is among the most profoundly personal cross-discipline tributes any artist has ever bestowed upon another. Enter the provocative, torturous world of two of the greatest artists Latin American culture has ever produced!

"Stories of the drug abuse, poverty, and desperation of a farming community located in California's agriculturally wealthy heartland, home to a large immigrant population and a high rate of violent crime. Chronicling one young boy's coming-of-age, the stories reveal a deeper layer of sediment in a fertile American landscape"--Provided by publisher.
