Is Epstein a despicable man? He's certainly trying desperately at something. When his wife disappears he's frantic to talk to his daughter. But what can he tell her? There must be a reason and he's all but sure about the gruesome answer. Can he protect Sylvia from the truth, from her terrible lineage and, ultimately, from himself? Off-beat and sordid, The Blood Poetry is a twisted, yet honest look at our desire to connect with others and the ways in which we are often stymied by our own efforts to get closer. Epstein is a curious mix of monster and romantic struggling to maintain a shred of dignity in his dingy, beat down world. "From some forgotten box under Patrick Bateman's bed comes this rat rod of a novel: ragged, supercharged and wildly inappropriate...The main pervert's agony would be harrowing if it didn't also happen to be very funny." —Grace Krilanovich, author of The Orange Eats Creeps "Pitts-Gonzalez tears apart what we know of structure and character, narrative and theme ... has brought to us his vision and his is uncompromisingly surreal and vicious in its value of entertainment." —Shock Horror "The Blood Poetry is a brilliant, brutal assault of a novel — raw, twisted, and compulsively readable." —Shelf Unbound "Horror writing that is as it should be: penetrating deep into the psyche, so much so that it changes how you look at the world. We think it will go down as a classic." —Farley's Bookshop

In poems brilliantly textured and layered, Salgado Maranhão integrates socio-political thought with subjects abstractly metaphysical. Concrete collides with conceptual--butcher shops, sex, and machine guns in conversation with language, absence, and time--resulting in a collection varied as well as unified, an aesthetic at once traditional and postmodern. Writing in forms both fixed and free, Maranhão’s language suggests a jazz-like musicality that rings true in Alexis Levitin’s masterful translations. For readers who enjoy the complexity of Charles Simic, or the stylistically innovative syntax of César Vallejo, Maranhão’sBlood of the Sunis a sensually provocative amalgamation of both.
In Blood of the Sun, Alexis Levitin has given us a perfect English rendering of Salgado Maranhão's deft expression of the tonality of this people and land.

Religious poetry is the holy of holies of literature. In all ages poets have been the interpreters of the finer feelings of humanity, and the greatest have treated the loftiest themes that can employ the mind and the heart -- the relation of man to his Maker, and the duties and privileges which arise from it. It has been the aim of the editors to make the present collection truly catholic. It embraces a body of representative poems of all ages, denominations, and countries. The authors are allowed the fullest liberty of uttering their sentiments in their own words. - Preface.
