Author: Linda Eguiluz (egg-ee-loose) lives and writes in Austin, Texas.
Book: The Carcass Undressed
Synopsis: In her debut collection, Linda Eguiluz explores the maladies of the body and its consequences. Drawing from the unconstrained depth of free verse and confessional poetry, this collection is divided into three sections: The Body, The Bones, and The Heart. Each section looks at the inner workings of the body and the environment that provokes it. Themes of motherhood, mental illness, relationships, and identity permeate the contents of this book—to bring a clearer picture of what it means to be a woman.
