Yoruba chants, intimate portraits, slices of street life,
the crossing of waters, and the power of a clothesline are only some of what
you will savor in Maria Aponte’s evocative new book, Transitions of a Nuyorican Cinderella, a collection of her poems,
prose and performance pieces—as well as a “fairy tale from da Bronx!” You’ll be
sighing in appreciation and tapping your feet in recognition of Aponte’s
personal journey and its embodiment in rich words, notable characters, and
engaging rhythm. This is a book for the spirit.
