Roberto Carlos Garcia
Interview at Jasminne Menendez blog Plátano Poets Cafe:
"Who I am is at the center of everything I write. The history of this world proves that the power structure has traditionally hated everything I am. That means everyday I go out into the world and everything I do is an act of survival and defiance, a political act. My identity is my major metaphor.
I am a husband, a father, and a son. I have a great responsibility to that part of myself and everything I write, everything I explore in my writing is urgently tied to that."
Interviewed by poet and novelist Gessy Alvaraz. We discuss my collection, Melancolia, in the latest episode of podcast, Digging Through with Gessy Alvarez. Listen to Parts 1 & 2 of my interview by clicking below.
