New Micro-review of Most Human Human Contest

Check out Irene Marques's review at American Micro-reviews & Interviews.





















Excerpt:
"We may appear as brutes by day in order to survive in the world we live in, but at night, behind the dark curtains of the stage or in a sudden movement and dance of the body, we reveal our existential yearning, when the spirit is allowed to speak and exit the walls of the body-material that cuts, dissects and reduces. It is in this interval that beingness is, and we become the “most human human,” suspending the force of gravity and evading the chains that want to make us small."

It's Finally Here!

Order your copy of the anthology I co-edited with Luis Gonçalves over at Boavista Press.


























This anthology brings together fiction, poetry, recipes, and memoirs by some of the best Portuguese-Canadian and Portuguese-American writers to narrate the Portuguese Diasporic experience in North America. These works focus on lived experiences, shared spaces and the ethnic identity through which this distinctive culture is lived in the United States of America and Canada, both of which have long been home to significant and vibrant Portuguese communities that arrived roughly in the same waves of migration.
