TITLE: The Voting Booth After Dark: Despicable, Embarrasing, Repulsive
BY: Vanessa Libertad Garcia
Synopsis: a collection of poetry and short stories about a group of addicted gay & lesbian Latino club kids destroying themselves throughout the course of the 2008 elections. The book focuses on how they affect and are affected by the national politics happening around them.
This ‘modern day’ work of art is a simple glance at the inner thoughts of the constantly turning wheels inside the brain. I was impressed by the honest tone and ‘today-society’ language used to portray the characters thoughts and emotions. At first glance, the underlying message I received was that of despair and darkness, but ultimately the collection is about living for today, not giving up on your dreams, and knowing that life’s possibilities are endless in this ever changing world.
