Emanuel Xavier is an acclaimed writer–often referred to as one of the first openly gay Nuyorican poets and founder of contemporary “mariposa lit.” With heartfelt honesty and humor, Nefarious is a poetry collection that welcomes the reader into the second act of a former underage prostitute.

This book captures insights into his private world; relationships, heartbreaks, life as a spoken word artist, time spent with his cat, aging. With a dose of dark humor, Xavier’s pleasure in the written word and his passion makes this an engaging collection.

Featured guest David Iglesia will also share a few of his poems.
