About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: The Other Side: El Otra Lado. Poems.

Publisher: Dutton, New York

Publication Date: 1995

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.


A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine dust jacket. Laid-in is the first issue postcard for the book. Tracing a lyrical journey through the landscape of immigrant life, these direct, reflective and often sensuous poems are grouped into five sections which, like the points of a star, indicate a circle. Alvarez's assured collection reveals that change can take us across borders so slowly that only on reaching the other side can we see the distances we've come. Bookseller Inventory # 25067
