Achy Obejas, in conversation with Luis Rodriguez, discusses Boomerang / Bumerán: Poetry / Poesía

A bilingual poetry collection from a Cuban-American writer-activist that explores themes of identity, sexuality, and belonging.

A unique and inspiriting bilingual collection of lyrical poetry written in a bold, mostly gender-free English and Spanish that address immigration, displacement, love and activism.

The book is divided into 3 sections: First, poems addressing immigration and displacement; secondly, those addressing love, lost and found, and finally, verses focusing on action, on ways of addressing injustice and repairing the world. The volume will be both inspiration and support for readers living with marginalized identities and those who love and stand with them. (Beacon Press)
