The collection of poems in Patricia Blanco's literary debut comes at the reader like an exposed nerve. Her words and turns of phrase layer upon the page, transporting us through her full-throated collage of revelations, heartache and love. This is the kind of book better ingested than merely read, a naked, rigorous desire for awakening through truth. Pluto takes a breathtaking swipe at purging and unburdening, weaving lines through a journey of imagery that often tends to abstraction without losing its emotional impact.

About the Author
Raised in New York City by her mother, Patricia Blanco has always been drawing and writing her way through life while keenly observing the world. A complex childhood involving a difficult divorce and her mother's serious illness greatly influenced her expression through art. Much of her early working career revolved around the excitement of the fashion and publishing worlds. Although they never quite captured her heart, they did ignite her instinctive affinity for computer technology and design, leading to a graphic design career. A decade later, motherhood became an interesting catalyst to Blanco's inward journey, melding her past and present and authenticating her spirit and self-expression. By then she had left her graphic design career focusing instead on painting. In 2014, Blanco published her first poetry collection, Pluto: Poems & Prose, inspired by rebirth within the virtue of unfiltered truth. She now resides in the Hudson Valley with her husband and two children. You can visit her at www.patriciablanco.com.
