CHANNILLO
Ninety-Two Surgically Enhanced Mannequins
By Julián Esteban Torres López

Series Description:

A debut collection of poetry twenty years in the making.  The ninety-two minimalist pieces tackle the absurdity of what it means to be human and honor how moments, not plots, compose our lives.  The collection is an attempt to capture these fleeting moments, while also trying to remember the intensity of the mundane and the abyss of the beautiful.

Torres López attributes much of his style to his numerous cultural experiences, his fear of forgetting, people and nature watching, and the traumas of the human condition.

His work has been inspired by Charles Simic, Friedrich Nietzsche, Wayson Choy, and Spanish-language authors, such as Federico García Lorca, Jorge Luis Borges, Octavio Paz, Pablo Neruda, and Gabriel García Márquez. 

You can purchase a paperback or e-Book version of NINETY-TWO SURGICALLY ENHANCED MANNEQUINS on Amazon.
