A book of poems by Ananda Esteva
Available at civildefensepubs.wordpress.com and amazon.com and at Pegasus Books in Berkeley
“Verde!” cries Pisco Sours. This poetry grows fresh and green on the vine. In these poems you will hear rhythms of conquest and rebellion, boiling over in a furious song. Ananda Esteva is a skilled wordsmith, blending together the shout of spoken word and the haunting chant of traditional songs. She takes us to Chile and to the Americas of the conquest and before. She guides us steadily on a journey through horror to the possibility of redemption. Join her on this march.
