Untameable City, edited by Sandi Stromberg

SKU: r9780972943291

In this anthology, eighty-three poets raise their voices to sing, in the best Greek tradition, “Oh Houston, You Untameable City!” Through vibrant images, they invite us to experience the cultured and civilized Houston, along with the Houston of Mother Nature and her wildness.

They contemplate potholes, weeds, and construction, traffic jams and summer’s sweltering heat and humidity. They zoom in on the javelinas and fire ants, the bayous and pollution; the great art, pop art, and art car parade; the mixed neighborhoods, ethnicities, and the homeless; the hurricanes and their threats; the bountiful music, theatre, and dance.
