Endorsements & Reviews

“In City of Coughing and Dead Radiators, his fourth book, Martín Espada defines political poetry for the turn of the century. . . . [This] is a book to be opened by those who know the consequences of poets speaking out, but also a book for a larger audience convinced that poetry is a source of survival.” — Ray Gonzalez, The Nation
