Willie Perdomo is hitting The Lit. Bar stage for a reading and lively discussion with Bronx poet, Paula Ramirez.

In his fourth collection, The Crazy Bunch, Perdomo returns to his beloved neighborhood to create a vivid, kaleidoscopic portrait of a “crew” coming of age in East Harlem at the beginning of the 1990s. In poems written in couplets, vignettes, sketches, riffs, and dialogue, Perdomo recreates a weekend where surviving members of the crew recall a series of tragic events: “That was the summer we all tried to fly. All but one of us succeeded.”

Willie Perdomo is the author of The Crazy BunchThe Essential Hits of Shorty Bon Bon, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and winner of the International Latino Book Award; Smoking Lovely, winner of the PEN Open Book Award, and Where a Nickel Costs a Dime, a finalist for the Poetry Society of America Norma Farber First Book Award.
