De aquí y de allá
Seven Mexican American teenagers hide in a cave in Texas to avoid the draft in World War I. During the next seven days and nights, they tell stories and we learn who they are and why they left home. The teens fall asleep and when they they wake up, they find out that it is the year 2024, a post pandemic era. The second part of the narrative presents different aspects of the war told from various points of view, which taken together highlight haunting tales that will stay with the reader long after finishing the book. The text contains photographs which facilitate the visualization of the other worldliness of the stories.

The poetic language of Carlos Aguasaco is familiar, fluid, and thoughtful. His work is founded on several sensible, personal myths: some declared and others hidden with great discretion and skill. His poetry reveals him as a wounded, yet defiant poet, master of a layered tongue, far from conventional or traditional styles. --Ahmad Alshahawy
The New York City Subway Poems includes a collection of prose poems written as reactions to narcoviolence and femicide in Mexico, particularly in the City of Juarez. In the face of senseless death, what could Shakespeare or Cervantes say? Does poetry have some sort of answer to such horror? These poems tell the tales of chilling situations, of roads without return, of the difficult crossroads young Latin-Americans face in the context of poverty and inequality --María Ángeles Pérez López
Carlos Aguasaco's poetry collection renders a voice to the next immigrants wave, the latest nomads of our world, those that daily ride the subway and continuously reshape the metropolis. In this bilingual collection the poet emphasizes the migrant experience and daringly reveals a lyrical itinerary through the City of New York. --Juan Armando Rojas Joo
