Broadcasting across borders that separate nations and lovers, Susan Montez's debut collection of poetry, Radio Free Queens, fuses the political condition with the state of the human heart. Lost behind the checkpoints, real and imaginary, the working women she writes about---travel agents, school teachers, dominatrixes---struggle to cross time, distance, and geographical boundaries. Keenly insightful, lyrical in language, these poems bathe a pathos in a voice unique in humour and perspective.
