The Flying Garcias is the first full-length collection by Richard Garcia. And yet, in reading these refreshing poems, one has the sense that he has been poetically tracking the inconsistencies of our culture for a long, long time. His drop-dead timing is as masterful as his natural grace is rare. An air of enchantment surprises on every page.’ ‘In a voice that is funny, tender, sad and wise, a hybrid of the lyrical and the colloquial, Richard Garcia delights us with his imagination and his knowledge of the human heart. These poems remind us that the earth still has secrets and wonders among its terrors. If there were angels, they'd talk to us in this tone.’
