Why We Chose Eloisa Amezcua’s From the Inside Quietly for the Rumpus Poetry Book Club


We’re excited to share that we’ll be reading Eloisa Amezcua’s debut collection, From the Inside Quietly, as our January Poetry Book Club selection!

Ada Limón, author of Bright Dead Things, writes

A complex examination of how we come to love and how we come to be, the poems in From the Inside Quietly create an intricate and urgent music of the border and the feminine body. With a voice that’s barbed at times but also full of empathy and grace, this is a powerful debut that will continue to rattle and quake in the mind.
