We always love hearing about publication updates from our Anthology authors, so we are pleased to share that Tony Robles (his piece in the Anthology is “The Bee Keeper”) has a new book available:

T Robles cool Title: Cool Don’t Live Here No More — A Letter to San Francisco

Publisher: Ithuriel’s Spear Press, SF

Purchase from SPD, Berkeley, CA

Description: Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. California Interest. Activism. Filipino Studies.

Review: “In poems and vignettes, Tony Robles has written the generational memory of San Francisco at the point where alienation, deportations, and technological invasions are gutting its soul. This Filipino activist just won’t have it and neither will you after reading this superb book that restores the sense of a People’s City.”—Jack Hirschman
