Nuria Barrios’ new book of poems takes readers to a place where life feeds equally on light and shadows.

La Luz de la Dinamo is a book of poems about strange love. It is divided into three parts, three stages on a road: love, childhood, death. The three ages of life appear dislocated, their chronological order overturned, to show the fragile barriers between them: love and death abide in childhood, childhood and love throb in death.
