“Sometimes, if pain is given a voice, it may transform itself into healing. It may also dislodge the ones who hear it. In this book, the poems build a feeling of living and being lived, of seeing (suffering) and being seen (being the suffering ourselves)–of leaving a place and hiding it within. What would otherwise be told as the story of one person or of one group becomes part of a broader circulatory of existence.” -Lúcia Leão reviewed in Rhino.
