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.

My Kill Adore Him is a collection of poems from Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize-winner Paul Martínez Pompa. With a unique, independent voice, Martínez Pompa interrogates masculinity, race, language, consumerism, and cultural identity in poems that honor los olvidados, the forgotten ones, who range from the usual suspects brutalized by police to factory workers poisoned by their environment, from the victim of a homophobic beating in the boys’ bathroom to the body of Juan Doe at the Cook County Coroner’s Office. Some of the poems rely on somber, at times brutal, imagery to articulate a political stance while others use sarcasm and irony to deconstruct political stances themselves.

Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. "With sly humor and lyrical intensity, Manuel Paul Lopez brings us a debut collection that could make the iceworker sing. If there is a heaven, Andres Montoya is looking down and exclaiming, "­Orale!"--Daniel A. Olivas. "I think he's come through with a solid first book. And I think he's headed above and beyond"--Howard Junker. "DEATH OF A MEXICAN is a laboratory of language--a book of "hummed hymns" that is, indeed, " Ginsbergian Chicano-style Blake vision" signaling a singular debut"--Francisco Aragon.

Filled with the nuanced beauty and complexity of the everyday—a pot of beans, a goat carcass, embroidered linens, a grandfather’s cancer—A Tongue in the Mouth of the Dying journeys through the inherited fear of creation and destruction. The histories of South Texas and its people unfold in Laurie Ann Guerrero’s stirring language, including the dehumanization of men and its consequences on women and children. Guerrero’s tongue becomes a palpable border, occupying those liminal spaces that both unite and divide, inviting readers to consider that which is known and unknown: the body. Guerrero explores not just the right, but the ability to speak and fight for oneself, one's children, one's community—in poems that testify how, too often, we fail to see the power reflected in the mirror.

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.

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.

"Chris Abani's poetry resonates with a devastating beauty which cuts through to the heart of human strength."--Pride Hands Washing Water is Chris Abani's fourth poetry collection--a mischievous book of displacement, exile, ancestry, and subversive humor. The central section, "Buffalo Women," is a Civil War correspondence between lovers that plays on our assumptions about war, gender, morality, and politics. Sweetest Henri, I know we promised to be honest, one to the other, but your recent missive, though welcome as any epistle from you, filled me with a dread that clung like dampness to wet wood. I am terrified for your immortal soul, dear sweet Henri. This mad war of Lincoln is infecting you with a sickness too depraved to even address. . . Abani's writing is ruthless, at times traumatic, and consistently filled with surprising twists and turns.
