Renault 30 by Abel M. Folgar

SKU: 9781954640993

Renault 30 is a sepia-toned drive through the dusty highways of 1980's Venezuela. Abel M. Folgar vividly portrays the country of his youth while weaving a personal narrative culled from the introduction of the automobile at the turn of the century (a Cadillac in 1904, actually), his great-granduncle's accident, a bizarre fascination with American poet m loncar, and bonding with his father. His poems are pockmarked by the excess of oil wealth, pop culture, and the rumblings of a communism that began and went "dormant" well before he was born, returned in his early adolescence, and persists long after he left.
