The brilliant Nuyorican poet and performance worker Edwin Torres makes his debut in San Francisco, and Small Press Traffic's got him. When we read inNew York magazine, "It's hard to wrestle meaning from the shreds of language he tosses out. And on paper, Torres seems to make as much sense as a Port Authority schizophrenic," we knew that Edwin Torres was our kind of guy. "It is obvious that Edwin Torres is the bastard love child of Mayakovsky and Parra, midwifed by Apollinaire," writes Christian Haye in The Poetry Project Newsletter. His books include I Hear Things People Haven't Really Said and Lung Poetry.
