    Delgado has a way of getting to the marrow right away. These poems are unrelenting, beautiful and brutal at once.

    A wonderful debut from a needed voice. Here's an interview I did with the author: "The Flame Grows Wild in the Sunlight": An interview with Diana Marie Delgado

    This collection is incisive, a visceral body of poems breathing, hunkered down with night sweats for those we love who harm themselves and us.

    Diana is a poet gifted with the conviction of voice and clarity that cuts to the bone. Her book is a work of art and a must read for 2019.
