Chile, en particular

Chile, en particular

Lilianet Brintrup Hertling

Chile, en particular o “gritar en chileno como [lo hacen] los piñones, el mote, los pájaros y las empanadas, tal vez como murmuraban el huemul y la razón”, de Lilianet Brintrup Hertling, es un libro que sorprenderá al lector. Sus referencias geográficas, históricas, culturales, culinarias y biográficas comienzan con la manducación: se mastican, se tragan, se degluten formando un bolo alimenticio inmediatamente descriptivo, valorativo y etopéyico.

 Song of Six Rivers

Song of Six Rivers

Zev Levinson

Song of Six Rivers relates one man’s life-changing experiences throughout the Humboldt Bay region of northern California, depicting the area’s geography and history along the way, through both poetry and archival photography. When the muse of this epic poem, Guy Kuttner, died unexpectedly, Zev Levinson heard his voice imploring him to sing of the land they both love. As a roving teacher, Zev had come to know the Six Rivers terrain and communities intimately. He put his pen to the task of meeting Guy’s daunting challenge, confronting mortality and loss as he ventured to understand our connection to earth. At its heart, this endeavor strives to weave poetry into the everyday lives of those who dwell behind the redwood curtain.
