A Texas Tongue Untied

San Antonio native (and recent Texas Observer contributor) Laurie Ann Guerrero has just published her second book of poetry, A Tongue in the Mouth of the Dying, on University of Notre Dame Press. The book—her first full-length outing after the 2008 chapbook Babies Under the Skin—won the 2012 Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize.

Guerrero is an editor at Austin’s Dos Gatos Press and an instructor at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio and the MFA creative writing program at the University of Texas-El Paso.
