Luis Armenta Malpica, one of the most renowned writers of his generation, provides us with a wonderful narrative poem in this unique book. The protagonist takes us on a journey where alcohol and human misery is present in everyday life. Told from a feminine perspective, the lyric voice narrates her personal experience transforming, in the process, wine into poetry and this in turn into a mystical experience. From the poetics of pain and transubstantiation, the poet manages to create a dazzling, sharp and vivid language with an astonishing craft. In a wonderful artistic version by Lawrence Schimel, the English reader will, for the first time, have access to this unforgettable book from one of the strongest voices in contemporary Mexican poetry.
