EDUARDO C. CORRAL GUILLOTINE (Graywolf Press, 2020)
Longlisted for the 2020 National Book Award for Poetry
“Corral nimbly bridges the personal and political, evoking themes of migration to ask what it means to be unwanted.”--New York Times Book Review, New & Noteworthy
“Brief, pungent, perfectly crafted lines create a nightmarish atmosphere surrounding border crossings. . . . The images rushing down these pages in tightly paced cadence take readers on a haunting journey, with Corral’s impressionism delivering more than taut realism ever could.”--Library Journal, starred review
“Devastating and electrifying. . . . Shot through with the dark realities of human tragedy, Corral’s latest is a virtuosic compendium of grief."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
