Description: 

"In Sheila Maldonado's work, it's as if the great voices of Latin American poetry are speaking through a contemporary American woman and remixed to the beat of her own particular urban swagger and wit. It's a song that can contain pop culture, social satire, linguistic high jinks, and a funky sense of form. Read this powerful and often hilarious book as a source of self-help to get you through the city's frustrations. It will leave you refreshed, restored, and ready to "tear our a heart / if you have to."—Elaine Equi, author of Click and Clone

"If you're ever lost in the beguiling and fractured translation of being Latin@ in America, Shela Maldonado's one-bedroom solo is just the book you need. These poems bring you into a conversation that is drop-dead funny and cunningly tragic. Maldonado draws a self-portrait in an active mirror; an X-ray of love, despair, homeland, and good ol' signifyin'. One-bedroom solo is a memorable first collection."—Willie Perdomo, author of Smoking Lovely
