Xochiquetzal Candelaria's second book, Show Me the Bells, celebrates ecological, political, and social change amidst the crush of late-stage capitalism. Foregrounding the Nahuatl concept of Nepantla, the collection mobilizes imagery, music, and silences to awaken our real and raw memories and to honor the power of witnesses and conduits. Emphasizing the porousness of forms, it focuses us on the interconnectedness of love and seeks to reclaim the power we have given away.
XOCHIQUETZAL CANDELARIA is the author of Empire. Her work has appeared in The Nation, Tin House, New England Review, Seneca Review, and other magazines. She holds degrees from University of California, Berkeley and New York University and is the recipient of awards including an NEA Fellowship in Poetry and grants from the Vermont Studio Center, Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, Barbara Deming Memorial Fund, and the LEF Foundation. Her writing has been anthologized, most recently in Other Musics: New Latina Poetry, The Poetry of Capital, and The Awesome Difficult Work of Love: June Jordan's Legacy.
