Expand your horizons and diversify your reading with this debut poetry collection by Salvadoran poet, Yesika Salgado.
Corazón is a love story. It is about the constant hunger for love. It is about feeding that hunger with another person and finding that sometimes it isn't enough. Salgado creates a world in which the heart can live anywhere; her fat brown body, her parents home country, a lover, a toothbrush, a mango, or a song. It is a celebration of heartache, of how it can ruin us, but most importantly how we always survive it and return to ourselves whole.
"Her poetry is incredibly personal; she invites readers into moments that have defined her life." -- Remezcla
