1991 PEN Oakland/Josephine Miles Award for Literary Excellence The Concrete River is a collection of poems by poet laureate of Los Angeles Luis Rodr#65533;guez. They illuminate the gritty idiosyncrasies of immigrant life in urban barrios spanning Los Angeles to Chicago to Harlem. Rodr#65533;guez lends powerful voices to those struggling to keep the gas on, to find work, and to keep love. Populated by a vibrant cast of characters, ranging from the drugged, to the eccentric, to the heartbroken, Rodr#65533;guez's poems protest capitalism, violence, and exploitation while reveling in the potential of compassion.
