Library Journal Review

"Harp & ham hock/ sugar & succotash," Hernandez (Skin Tax) calls the rural West by more than its name: "Fresno is the inexhaustible nerve/ in the twitching leg of a dog" and "San Gabriel;/ patron saint of discarded dreams, hear the cry of new voices suffering/ in methamphetamine fields." With clean, purposeful lines he gestures to subtleties in landscape to depict the invincible personality of California.-AP (c) Copyright 2013.
