Marilyn Kiss’ Pacharán Dreams is a sacramental infusion of singing, dancing and unbridled passion. Kiss takes the reader on a journey to a rich cultural landscape, the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, where secret fantasies are unleashed from the magic of the Pacharán. The language is seductive–an absolute MUST read!
I didn’t really know what to expect of Pacharán Dreams, a collection of poems about the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Sure enough, I am happy to report that Marilyn Kiss delivers with verve and panache. These poems flow with an inebriated technicolor logic that reminds the reader what it is to live both in, and for the moment. Kiss leads us on a journey through the existential streets of Pamplona: from the yearning anticipation of arrival to the adrenaline rush of the event itself to the reflective hangover of having to leave it all behind. If you’ve ever been to Pamplona for the Running of the Bulls, read this book. It will take you back. If you’ve never been to Pamplona, read this book. It will take you there… Coupled with Miguel Angel’s crisp and evocative photographs, these poems offer a thoroughly enjoyable and lively reading experience. Fiesta! Fiesta! Fiesta!
