The best reading you missed…

was Benjamín Prado‘s reading at SAMLA last Friday night. All Spanish, overlooking the Atlanta nighttime skyline, 25 stories above 75/85. The man has the gift. He got his training from Rafael Alberti and he writes like the Generación del 27–which is to say, better than 99% of poets writing today in whatever language. His new book is Marea humana.
