A Time of Angels
Illustrated by Francisco Toledo
Translated by George McWhirter





World Literature Today

"Aridjis's angels bring to light human qualities of mind and suggest mechanisms for how humans block their own self-awareness...and become important companions and cherishers of what is most intense in human experience: being born, falling in love, dying."-- Susan Smith Nash, World Literature Today

Poet and environmental activist Homero Aridjis co-authored this New York Times op-ed on the decline of monarch butterflies in Mexico.

Words Without Borders

"Aridjis, through his political and environmental work, has fought to save the planet and its species, but the poems in A Time for Angels allow him to explore darker territory... More than a time for angels, Aridjis's poems suggest, it is a time for self-reckoning."


SF Weekly: Read Local

"Aridjis, one of Mexico's most admired poets, believes that angels are among us, moving among gritty realities in silent hope. In this illustrated, bilingual limited edition, the poet shares glimpses of angels all around us."

—Alexis Coe
