A traditional game of chance popular in Mexico and in Mexican American culture, Loter�a is poetically rendered in Esteban Rodr�guez's eighth collection, with each poem revolving around one of the fifty-four cards. Using the image presented as a catalyst for exploration and self-reflection, Rodr�guez unveils the familial journey between two countries and cultures through both a surreal and narrative lens. Here, a mother unearths a severed hand in the desert. A father discovers his heart among a heap of discarded items. And at one point, the speaker--toggling between his role as witness and son--finds himself in a canoe on a river contemplating the meaning behind an authentic experience. Lyrical, insightful, and honestly engaging, Loter�a sheds light on a world that doesn't so easily reveal itself, adding to Rodr�guez's prolific and important oeuvre.
