Blood Sugar Canto, Ire'ne Lara Silva's third book, is a powerful hymn to life and to her own body by a "curandera-poet" struggling to transmute the fear and despair of diabetes into healing.

She sings of the syringes, the paraphernalia of this new world she must live in, its losses and griefs, its pain, and her memories of those in her family who have died of this disease.

Tim Z. Hernandez (Natural Takeover of Small Things) writes,"The poet invites us to an intimate dinner at her table, to sit and eat with her, share stories of azucar, of labwork and grace, to indulge ourselves in the unspoken cravings, and we leave nourished, full, and stronger for it."

A beautiful and original book.
