Item description for A House Waiting for Music by David Hernandez...

After winning the 2002 Tupelo Chapbook award presented by judge Ray Gonzalez, a full-length version of David Hernandez's imaginative, heartfelt work became inevitable. The author's eyes rove the landscape of his experience and focus on the details of shadows, his words giving a fresh accent to the pathos and unavoidable humor of loss. A new voice that's loud, lucid and impossible to ignore.

"A House Waiting for Music has enough verbal Hip-hop to get the cops called. Listen up!"-Kim Addonizio

David Hernandez won the National Looking Glass Chapbook Competition, and is the recipient of a grant from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation. His poems and drawings have appeared in numerous literary magazines, including The Southern Review, Other Voices, and Prairie Schooner.

Reviews - What do customers think about A House Waiting for Music?

Caution: Thought Provoking Poetry, Misleading Cover  Dec 13, 2003
This review is a warning-if indeed it is a warning and not a recommendation-because of the title of the book. Though certainly appropriate for the collection at several levels, it is misleading. As is the cover-a floating piano, tumbling bowler hats a la The Brown Derby, and lace. Yes, wistful memories are evident in this collection, but a book of poetry full of whimsy, let alone a book of musical poetry that recalls a Victorian evening at home, this definitely is not. This is a house waiting for music. Important words, those. WAITING FOR.
Readers searching for thought provoking poetry with some grit and grime thrown into a mix of memories, will enjoy this book. Indeed she might find this an important new voice in the world of poetry. However, a reader shouldn't buy it for its lyrical quality.
