DUSK & DUST

Esteban Rodriguez

With a keen eye, gentle humor, and great empathy, Esteban Rodriguez’s debut collection explores the lives of the generations who have made their homes in a landscape too often neglected and forgotten. Set along the U.S.-Mexico border, DUSK & DUST introduces the voice of a “boy straddled on the valley of two geographies.”

Like the region they portray--relentless, unsympathetic, singed with uncertainty--these poems are marked with a visceral beauty. The young speaker grapples with a host of cultural and familial expectations, a tenuous grasp on his family’s language, and his own burgeoning identity in a richly conjured world. Funny and poignant, DUSK & DUST lays out a labyrinth of cultural expectations, and, with a voice clear and unique, illuminates a world that seeks to be remembered and lived.
