[Red Missed Aches] by Jennifer Tamayo, now available for pre-order!

Jennifer Tamayo's Red Missed Aches Read Missed Aches Red Mistakes Read Mistakes is now available for preorder on the Switchback website and on Amazon!

[Red Missed Aches] is a perfect-bound 8.5" x 8.5" book of text and images, winner of the Switchback Books 2010 Gatewood Prize, selected by Cathy Park Hong.

From Cathy Park Hong's introduction:

Jennifer Tamayo's writing is cacophonous, rude, and stripped. She uses equal measures of English, Spanish, and Spanglish; she landmines her poetry with malapropisms so the music is startling and pleasingly discordant.

[Red Missed Aches] feels defiantly unfinished, adhering to a DIY feminist punk aesthetic so that it is more rough assemblage than bound book, a palimpsest that provocatively revises female sexuality and citizenship. Tamayo's debut collection is a daring and astonishing work that refuses borders.
