Daniel Borzutzkys new collection of poetry, The Performance of Becoming Human, draws hemispheric connections between the US and Latin America, specifically touching upon issues relating to border and immigration policies, economic disparity, political violence, and the disturbing rhetoric of capitalism and bureaucracies. To become human is to navigate these borders, including those of institutions, the realities of over- and under-development, and the economies of privatization, in which humans endure state-sanctioned and systemic abuses.--Publisher website.

Quite amazing, poetry books this good are rare. Borzutzky plants the reader into a feverish, liquid state of mind, filling it with images of dystopia, immigration, poverty, humanness... such heavy topics written to be captivating and almost beautiful. Seriously good poetry.
