Ana Maria Caballero


MAMMAL, Caballero’s latest manuscript, explores how biology delimits cultural rites. It was designated as a Manuscript of Exceptional Merit by Tupelo Press. Caballero’s award-winning work rips the veil off of romanticized motherhood and challenges the notion that female sacrifice is somehow a virtue. In her signature, straightforward verse, she gives voice to what’s left unsaid in that all-important space of home.
