Nepantla: An Anthology Dedicated to Queer Poets of Color (Nightboat Books, 2018)

QPOC_3 (1)

  • “An historical anthology, not only because it is the first major anthology of its kind, but also because it concerns itself with the act of constructing a kind of communal history.”- Torrin A. Greathouse, The Rumpus
  • Nepantla is clearly curated with patience and passion. Soto’s close attention is easy to recognize in his introduction and the all-star lineup spanning from the Harlem Renaissance to today.” -Aram Mrjoian, Chicago Review of Books
  • “Soto succeeds in assembling an expansive, sonorous, and literarily significant volume that reveals the broad range of engagements queer poets of color have undertaken over the years.” – Publishers Weekly
  • “It is an anthology worth reading, and a rich vein for discovering new poets for yourself.” – Sarah Rose Sharp, Hyperallergic
  • Nepantla is both an important reminder of the countless contributions of queer poets of color to the literary world, as well as a celebration of the current and future queer POC poetry community.” – Cosmo Halterman de Ochoa, Poetry Society of America
