    One thought on “American Flamingo”

    1. It is a short chapbook, but very much a chapbook. Frischkorn did a great job of putting it together, she takes the reader on a journey with her. "Journey" sounds cliche, but she is very intimate with the reader about all of the circumstances and myths surrounding her identity with her heritage--Cuban and American. The book is also beautifully laid out with colored ink on the interior--not like any chapbook I've ever seen.

    2. These poems were autobiographical and confessional, exploring soul-searching questions about the author's ties to the past and the country of her fore-fathers. I found elements of innocence and a spirited, almost naked, form of self expression in these poems that immediately interested me in wanting to learn more about the poet and her previous works. I Highly recommend this chapbook.
