Om boka

Speaking to both a personal and collective loss, in Brother Bullet Casandra Lopez confronts her relationships with violence, grief, guilt, and ultimately, endurance. Revisiting the memory and lasting consequences of her brother's murder, Lopez traces the course of the bullet-its trajectory, impact, wreckage-in lyrical narrative poems that are haunting and raw with emotion, yet tender and alive in revelations of light.

Drawing on migratory experiences, Lopez transports the reader to the Inland Empire, Baja California, New Mexico, and Arizona to create a frame for memory, filled with imagery, through the cyclical but changing essence of sorrow. This is paralleled with surrounding environments, our sense of belonging-on her family's porch, or in her grandfather's orange grove, or in the darkest desert. Lopez's landscapes are geographical markers and borders, connecting shared experiences and memories.

Brother Bullet tugs and pulls, drawing us into a consciousness-a story-we all bear.
