From the cover: "Written during Simon's nine-month sojourn through Latin America in the mid-nineties, each of its 131 octaves is a jewel in its own right, a moment and idea that resonates with distinctive tones. But each octave follows from the one before, and leads to the one after, and each is accompanied by a brief comentario that compliments it with history and local gossip. Though Simon writes primarily in English, his language embraces the unusual rhythms and nuances of a bilingual mind. John Oliver Simon is the author of numerous books of poetry in English and Spanish" Cover praise from Gary Snyder, Juan Felipe Herrera and others. 131 pp. Bookseller Inventory # Very near fine in illustrated wrappers (remainder line.) .ISBN # 0-887393993
