For issue 3 of molossus, I reviewed Luis Felipe Fabre’s poems about Sor Juana.


I was intrigued by this book because I had seen Fabre’s name mentioned in a lot of prominent places but had not read his work. In fact, I saw somewhere on Twitter that Valeria Luiselli called Fabre the best contemporary poet in Mexico (or something along those lines).

I had a brief quote in this New Yorker piece about Infinite Jest.
