Neighborhood Odes

by Soto, Gary

Condition: As New

Orlando, Florida, U.S.A.: Harcourt School Publishers, 1994. An unused school issued edition. Celebrates the small joys of life, describing the simple pleasures in his Mexican American neighborhood. The poems bring to life a variety of subjects. Beautifully illustrated with black and white woodcuts and with Spanish glossary in the back. Glossy pictorial cover.. Educational Edition. Hard Cover. As New. Illus. by David Diaz. 6 1/2 x 9 1/2.

From family pictures to piñatas, from the gato with a meow like a rusty latch to Fourth of July fireworks, the poet celebrates the startling and often overlooked moments that define childhood. “Affectionate without being overly sentimental, the collection provides a good introduction to contemporary poetry as well as a fine homage to a Chicano community.”-- Publishers Weekly
