They Call Me is a stunning act of self-definition by a powerful new voice in contemporary poetry. Angélica María Aguilera is a woman “with a story/ and the nerve to tell it,”and her courageous debut delights and surprises at every turn, unabashedly feminist, laced with humor. From Aztec warrior princesses to Frida Kahlo’s unibrow, these bilingual poems strut across the page, ablaze in music, fireworks and glitter. As Aguilera reclaims language and unlearns shame, she claims herself as a master storyteller. Call her magnificent.
