*Olvido García Valdés. Del ojo al hueso. 2001. 116 pp.

I should have a system for giving two stars instead of "just asterisk or no asterisk." But that would get too complicated. This book is amazing. This is in many ways Olvido's best book. I'm not crazy about Anselm Kiefer, to whom she devotes the last part of the book. But I'm glad he inspired one of favorite Spanish poets. I'll just pretend he's a better artist than he is, looking at him through Olvido's eyes.
