Like an­gels and uni­corns, fa­bles have made them­selves scarce of late, but leave it to the land and lan­guage of magic re­al­ism to bring forth a bona fide spec­i­men. A gor­geously il­lus­trated, book-length poem of mas­ter­ful prose, there’s not much in way of comps to de­scribe this breath­taker, but take our word for it. Mia Leonin is the au­thor of three pre­vi­ous col­lec­tions. Her poetry has ap­peared in nu­mer­ous top jour­nals, and Mi­ami-based Nereida Gar­cia Fer­raz’s art has been ex­hib­ited in sev­eral US and Mex­ico mu­se­ums.
