An Evening with Rod Carlos Rodriguez

book coverauthor photoCantos, Incandescent is a testimonial that runs the gamut through a multitude of realities of war, illness, heartbreak, and more. Various territories and stark observations are painted in cultural textures and landscapes that are sometimes pastoral and at other times, unforgiving. The different voices in each piece dare the reader to witness their collective, unvarnished truths. There is something for everyone within these pages. The messages and concepts imparted in this book will remain long after the last words echo in the reader’s soul.
