Outbursts of Horror

212 pages1 hour


This collection of poetry and prose dives into the haunting wickedness, both perceived and imagined, that stems from intergenerational Caribbean folklore and New York City urban legend. Here abusive husbands, vengeful wives, and the restless spirits of great-grandmothers teach terrifying lessons when the balance between good and evil is pressed up against the wall and El Cuco comes to call. EL Davíd and Meléndez siphon the supernatural and the sensationalized from everyday God -fearing barrio demons to merciful African spirits that honor the horror of everyday living.
