Latino/Latina Studies. LGBT Studies. Like Whitman, Quesada is a poet of motion--journeying to the center of the US, where the traditions and innovations of first-generation Americans traverse the meditative starbursts of hills- ford rivers- cross prairies- and seek out the alpenglow of tomorrow and tomorrow. From Costa Rica to Los Angeles and across the continent, Quesadas poems chronicle one familys history: from the courtship of his parents to their separation, from his childhood struggles to awakening desire from his mothers lottery winnings to his own personal losses, Ruben Quesada carries us toward that seam in space where dream and experience intersect. This isnt the story of what it means to come to this country. Its the story of what it means to belong here--D. A. Powell.
