About this item
Poetry. Translated from the Spanish by Michelle Gil-Montero. Full of smoke and ghosts and giant saints, Valerie Mejer Caso's THIS BLUE NOVEL traces maps layered onto maps: desert spaces, family lineage, and memory filtered through watery paper. Mejer Caso leads the reader through dark tangles of vegetation on tattooed horses, hot on the trail of a damaged recollection under the elemental sky. Reading THIS BLUE NOVEL is like a rapture never quite complete, like being caught in a moment of "rotational velocity," simultaneously dizzying and thrilling.
