      Quite beautiful to see Mark Twain's handwritten birthday letter to Walt Whitman.

      “He’s the sharp-eyed observer in the corner who doesn’t say much, but makes every word count. He handles the political and the personal with equal grace, even as the lines blur. Dan Vera is damn good company. You’ll see.” Martín Espada

      "Full of longing and bittersweet humor, these poems are lyrical, narrative, poignant, and always powerful. In his own search for who and what he really is, Vera has given us a true portrait of the confused and often contradictory place that is modern America." Linda Rodriguez

      “Fascinated with language and memory, Vera's book couldn't come at a better time, with immigration reform and LGBT issues at the forefront of the national debate.” Florida Agenda
