Amorcito Maricón


A decade after his debut title, Santo de la Pata Alzada: Poems from the Queer/Xicano/Positive Pen, Lorenzo Herrera y Lozano returns with a collection of poems exploring queer Xicano desires, literal and mythical homeland(s), and brown bodies in perpetual displacement. Sitting at the intersections of reminisced childhood pop culture, defiantly claimed Mexicanidad, and coquettishly amorphous Xicanidad, Amorcito Maricón basks in the inherent politic, the inevitable heartbreak, and inescapable draw of brown on brown desire. Un libro para maricones and those who love us.
