Description

Saturday, 6/22, 6pm, join One Book One Bronx and BX Writers for the Bronx launch of Willie Perdomo’s new book, The Crazy Bunch. Willie will read and be joind by Bronx poet Paula Ramirez for a lively discussion.

In his fourth collection, The Crazy Bunch, Perdomo returns to his beloved neighborhood to create a vivid, kaleidoscopic portrait of a “crew” coming of age in East Harlem at the beginning of the 1990s. In poems written in couplets, vignettes, sketches, riffs, and dialogue, Perdomo recreates a weekend where surviving members of the crew recall a series of tragic events: “That was the summer we all tried to fly. All but one of us succeeded.”
