Carlos Cumpian
About the Author

Carlos Cumpián, a Chicano writer who examines American realities absent from mainstream poetry. Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Cumpián has planted firm roots in the Midwest. Cumpián was named among the Chicago Public Library's "Top Ten" requested poets and his poetry has been published in small press magazines as well as numerous anthologies. He has taught at Columbia College Chicago and has offered workshops on poetry and small press management.

"Carlos Cumpián's poems are brave, funny and passionate tales of all our lives." --Achey Obejas
"Carlos Cumpián writes poems brimming with Chicano life, full of anger, humor, and irony. The explosive energy of these poems flows into a vision of justice, gleaming from the page. Cumpián cares deeply, urgently, and so will the readers of this book." --Martin Espada
