2019 INDIES Winner
Gold, Poetry (Adult Nonfiction)

In "Hijito," selected by Eduardo C. Corral as winner of the 2018 Broken River Prize, Carlos Andrés Gómez writes of brutality and beauty with the same urgency and with a truth that burns readily; it is a collection of survival instincts. As a vital and tender exploration and deconstruction of contemporary society, his poetry engages with America’s ever-changing landscape and the ways in which race, gender, and violence coalesce.
