Summary

“First Finalist for the Codhill Poetry Chapbook award for 2008, Sibyl James’s Pistols and Hearts captures the beauty and ruggedness of daily life in Mexico through inventive lyricism. Oscillating between English and Spanish, declarations of love and regret, the oracular and the ordinary, a transcontinental vision emerges, both deeply personal and fiercely public.” — Pauline Uchmanowicz, final judge

Pistols and Hearts is Sibyl James’s eighth book. Some others include The Adventures of Stout Mama (fiction), Ho Chi Minh’s Motorbike (travel memoir), In China with Harpo and Karl (creative nonfiction), and China Beats (poetry). She has taught in the United States, China, Mexico, and as Fulbright professor, in Tunisia and Cote d’Ivoire.
