Award-winning poet Richard Blanco has turned to prose for his memoir The Prince of Los Cocuyos, just published by Ecco Press. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly says, “Blanco has a natural, unforced style that allows his
characters’ vibrancy and humor to shine through.” O Magazine adds, “In this vibrant memoir, Obama-inaugural poet Richard Blanco tenderly,
exhilaratingly chronicles his Miami childhood amid a colorful, if suffocating,
family of Cuban exiles, as well as his quest to find his artistic voice and the
courage to accept himself as a gay man.” You can listen to Blanco discuss the book in this NPR interview and learn about appearances on his book tour on his website.
