Raúl Rivero. Herejías elegidas. 2003.

This Cuban poet, who's been on the outs with the regime since 1991, writes in the colloquial style of many Latin American poets. I bought this book in Madrid once right after he came there to live--after spending about 20 months in jail in Cuba.

"Acaban de avisarme que he muerto/ Lo anunció entre líneas la prensa oficial"
