About the Book
A book of poetry about the river, the seasons and the people that reflect life in the sierra valley in the province of Cordoba, Argentina that I call home.
This collection of poems was originally available in 2005 as a hand bound limited edition artist's book. Numbered copies can be found in the collections of The Getty Museum in Los Angeles, Stanford University, the Davidson Library at the University of California Santa Barbara and Brown University.
This POD version of Flash Flood began circulating in January of 2011.
