from the Swan Scythe Press website:
"At last, a New Expanded edition of Solstice! The first edition of this title is out of print. The second edition is now for sale, and includes some poems translated into Spanish [by José Antonio Rodríguez and Jeannie Moody], as well as additional poetry not in the first edition. Solstice has been one of our bestsellers, and we are pleased to make it available again.”
Praise for Solstice
"Emmy Pérez's poems are elegantly political, never polemical. They discover the beauty in revolution without romanticizing its hardships. From the first moment I encountered her poems, I knew I was meeting a singular voice -- one that can find lyricism in struggle, dignity in injustice. Her voice sings of landscape and longing with deftness of image and diction. What a welcome debut."
"The new generation of Latina poets will be noted for the work of writers such as Emmy Pérez."
—Ray González, Bloomsbury Review
