New Review of Big Bad Asterisk* by Kristina Marie Darling


Check out a new review of Big Bad Asterisk* at Iowa Review.






Excerpt:

"Matos envisions writing as a practice in which hypotheses are tested, observations about the world are called into question, and eventually refined, perfected. It is through the presentation of multiple points of view, both in the world and within the self, that we come closer to the truth"

Spotlight at Terra Nostra


I am spotlighted in today's Artes & Letras section in Terra Nostra.




Translation:


Carlo Matos, born in the United States to parents from the parish of the Mosteiros in São Miguel, already plays a leading role in the new Luso-American poetry. A university professor in Chicago, his ancestral roots remain in his soul and give form and content to much of his work. Matos is now definitely an unavoidable name in our border-crossing literature.
