Translated from Spanish by Ruth Fainlight, Jennifer Clement and others.

This is the first collection in the UK for Mexican poet Víctor Manuel Mendiola, although his work has been appearing in small-press editions, in others' collections and in journals for some time. His collected poems 1987-2002 Tan oro y ogro (UNAM, Mexico City) won New York's Premio Latino de Literatura (Latino Literature Prize) in 2005. This Selected Poems shows the full range of his work, but begins with his astonishing erotic long poem 'Tu Mano Mi Boca' (Your Hand, My Mouth), which was so well received in Ruth Fainlight's translation when included in her latest collection of poems.
