I'm grateful for William Allegrezza's Locofo Chap Series for publishing my latest chapbook. Its impetus was recent anti-immigrant activities in the country. But it also picked up on my ongoing attempts to disrupt/expand the form of (auto)biography. The front cover presents me as a toddler in black-and-white ensconced (w/ no irony at the time by my Mama) in a colonial frame complete with U.S.-American counterpart. The books are apt as I'm a writer--well, writing well is the best revenge and the back cover shows me reading at the United States Library of Congress. So there's a lot to unpack in my new chap; I hope you check it out.
