“A haunting gallery of indigenous painters from colonial Peru is mapped out by Quechua poet Odi Gonzales. Through Lynn Levin’s lucid renditions, the painters’ eyes become ours, and so does Cusco, the heart of the Inca Empire. Among these artists, dignity and resistance were synonymous.”—Ilan Stavans, editor of The FSG Book of Twentieth-Century Latin American Poetry

“Using canny procedural approaches, Fox and Levin provide a genial and generous prompt-book for anyone wishing to write poems that are contemporary in their flavor but often traditionally inspired. And the sample poems, written with the book’s prompts in mind, are delightful instructional manuals in their own right.”
—Gregory Djanikian, Director of Creative Writing, University of Pennsylvania, author of Dear Gravity

“Lynn Levin does not only see the world around her in a surprising and original way, but watches the way her own mind works to produce those quirks and red herrings, which testifies to a great originality.”
