Bluestown Mockingbird Mambo is Sandra María Esteves’ third collection of poetry. Her first book of poems, Yerba Buena (1981), was revolutionary in establishing an urban Latina woman’s choice and esthetic. Bluestown Mockingbird Mambo takes all of the rhythmic, bluesy potential and the women’s poetic militancy of Yerba Buena and brings them to full, resplendent, funky bloom. In this volume she blends the oral tradition with the literary tradition in a fusion of spiritual, blues and women’s poetics.
