Somnambulist, The

The Somnambulist
  • Title: The Somnambulist
  • Authors: Lara Mimosa Montes
  • Published Date: 2016-10-05
  • Description: Poetry. Hybrid Genre. Latino/Latina Studies. "THE SOMNAMBULIST, a no-holds-barred monodrama, jolts the reader awake. Lara Mimosa Montes is a startling and powerful poet, who opts for vertigo, and whose greatest virtue may be her ability to perform flamboyantly while abstaining from histrionics--to recuse herself, with the exercise of a triumphant minimalism, from her own virtuoso spotlight. Braiding together numbness and desire, she brilliantly demonstrates, in the close-miked fashion of a cabaret Maurice Blanchot, the weirdness of being a witness, a quietly divulging voice."--Wayne Koestenbaum
