Natalia Toledo's The Black Flower and Other Zapotec Poems, with an award-winning translation by Clare Sullivan, describes contemporary Isthmus Zapotec life in lush, sensual detail. In Toledo's poems of love and loss the world's population turns into fish, death is a cricket, and naked women are made of wet magma. The Black Flower won the Nezhualcoyotl Prize, Mexico's highest honor for indigenous-language literature, in 2004. FINALIST FOR THE 2016 NATIONAL TRANSLATION AWARD! LONGLISTED FOR THE 2016 BEST TRANSLATED BOOK AWARD!
