This  is the first  collection of poems from the Pulitzer Prize and Lambda Literary Award winning Cuban-American author Achy Obejas. The poems in This Is What Happened In Our Other Life form a handbook of desire, navigating a course through the often-rocky landscapes of loving and living, while also charting the complexities of identity as the author explores her relationship to her lovers, her roots, her history, herself.   As in her novels, Obejas' poems are often concerned with memory - the physical memories of the body, the ache of wanting - and of finding a way home again. This exquisite little poetry book is from A Midsummer Night's Press' Body Language series,  devoted to texts exploring questions of gender and sexual identity.
