These poems engage the life of the famed Mexican muralist Jose "David" Alfaro Siqueiros, whose vision of a free, generous, and artistically liberated Mexico, completely responsive to both its people and its history, unified and informed his inner and outer worlds. It’s a magical and riveting work of historiography and the lyric imagination.

"What an ambitious book. It is a kind of mural . . . a great deal can happen, can sprawl across a single wall. So I guess it comes down to passion, to honoring it, to noting its dangers as well as its triumphs." -James Moore
