Poems of Reckoning and Hope by Félix Garmendía
We meet Félix Garmendía (author of Flying on Invisible Wings) again after he has been settled in Washington Heights for years with his husband. There he bears witness to some of the most frightening occurrences of the last fifty years: the disinformation of an out-of-control administration, the explosion of racism, the pandemic, and the storming of the Capitol. And through it all he — and we — find the grace and courage to laugh and find our own oases of hope.
