Christopher Rey Pérez is a poet working from within a matrix of opaque folklore, violence, and language. His first full-length book, gauguin’s notebook, was published by &NOW Books, and his writing has been featured in magazines and exhibitions such as diSONARE (Mexico), The Brooklyn Rail (U.S.), Terra Mediterranea: In Action (Cyprus), and You really know where you are. For the first time in history (China). He is originally from the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
“A fever dream that defies genre, gauguin’s notebook is an affidavit composed from survival zones of life in the precariat.” —Roberto Tejada
