Book Review:
Edward Vidaurre is a poet who "writes because he has no choice.” If he wants to live, he must write. He cannot be silent. In this regard, his poems are about everyday resistance, voice, survival, resilience, enduring and refusing to go away," wrote William W. Sokoloff in: Edward Vidaurre and the Politics of the Cholo Strut, New Political Science, 17 May 2021
