Javier O. Huerta, interviewed by Lauro Vazquez in Letras Latinas Blog, about Huerta’s book American Copia: An Immigrant Epic (Arte Público Press, 2012):


“Octavio Paz says that prose is like a march whereas poetry is like a dance, but I feel that my most poetic experience was being part of an immigrant rights march down International, a march that feels much like a dance.  … [T]he march seems to be a living organism composed of diverse and immediate rhythms.”
