Traje de Boda

Sold out

Aileen Ibardaloza's first book is a charmer more than a disarmer of the complicated relationship between men and women, mothers and daughters, or colonized and colonizer. The intensity of her voice is not unlike the Chilean poet Gabriela Mistral with Ilantos like these: "I say it's all./ Yes, if I ever lose my mouth" and "My old same hides/her face behind a fan". traje de boda belongs on any serious bookshelf of contemporary poetry. - Nick Carbo
