Book Release Celebration!


By Cristina Peri Rossi Translated and with an introduction by Marilyn Buck

“State of Exile is a haunting work that sat for 
decades, awaiting, like cicadas, its proper 
season. That time is now.” --Mumia Abu-Jamal

In the first years of her exile from Uruguay, 
lesbian poet, author, journalist and social 
activist Cristina Peri Rossi penned an 
extraordinary collection of poems – spare, 
beautiful poems fueled by the experiences of 
forced migration, poems so personal, she didn’t 
publish them for almost 30 years.

Now, in a collaboration across prison walls, 
continents and states of exile, U.S. political 
prisoner and poet Marilyn Buck has translated 
Peri Rossi’s poems into English. The poems are 
accompanied by two brilliant essays on exile, one 
by Peri Rossi, written for Spanish publication in 
2003, and the other by Marilyn Buck for this bi-lingual City Lights edition.
