The Lesser Tragedy of Death (Black Goat)

Chris Abani


"[A] courageous and relocating tribute to a brother long past off target; with ability, unflinching honesty, and redemptive compassion, Cristina García tracks his exceptional, complicated, and errant lifestyles. . . . those poems are the gorgeous, painful, staggering results of a trip to hell and again looking for the brother she loves. With this primary publication of poems, García, certainly one of our greatest novelists and storytellers, proves herself to be a skilled poet as well."—Julia Alvarez, writer of Saving the World

Cristina García is the writer of a number of novels—including Dreaming in Cuban—anthologies, and books for younger readers. a countrywide publication Award nominee, she can also be a traveling professor and Black Mountain Institute instructing fellow in inventive writing on the collage of Nevada, Las Vegas.
