Description

"This slim, salient volume will open readers' eyes wide to the true human stories behind blaring headlines about immigration policies and debates."
--Booklist, Starred Review

"Incredibly emotive and beautifully written, When I Walk Through That Door, I Am is a must read."
--Bustle

"Jimmy Baca's new book brilliantly reimagines the epic poem--and reshapes the epic hero as a young immigrant woman struggling to escape violence and find the child that has been torn away from her. A work that speaks strikingly and passionately of our times."
--Richard Blanco, inaugural poet and author of How to Love a Country

"[Baca] writes with unconcealed passion . . . both an intense lyricism and transformative vision."
--Denise Levertov

"[Baca's] voice, brutal and tender, is unique in America."
--Ilan Stavans, The Nation

"What makes [Baca's poetry] a success is its honesty, a brutal honesty, as well as his original imagery and the passion of his writing."
--Gary Soto, The San Francisco Chronicle

"To read Jimmy Santiago Baca's poetry is to tramp across the uneven terrain of human experience, sometimes lulled by the everydayness of work or relationships, and then dazzled by a flood of emotion or vibrant observation."
--Western American Literature
