Razor Edges of My Tongue
Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. "She is chanteusse, diva, storyteller, rebelde, rabblerouser, and all poeta. The pages of Razor Edges are filled with the voices of the women next door, las comadres who work, live and struggle in the barrio. Leticia engages her reader throughout; she's questioning and challenging, and knows exactly when to weave in her song. To read Leticia's chapbook is to experience tongue twisting, bilingual, meaningful mouthfuls of reality. It's like sitting in a caf‚, smelling the burnt and provocative aroma, and sipping the foam of a rich warm beverage"--Elba Rosario S nchez.
