At last available in English translation, "Soy Realidad" is Toma[ alamun's twenty-first collection of poetry, originally published in 1985. Showing a maturing poet at home as a citizen of the world, "Soy Realidad" ranges far from alamun's Slovenia, combining his native language with Latin, French, English, and Spanish, as well as evoking such places as Belize, the Sierra Nevada, and Mexico City. From sex to God, from landscape to literature, alamun's poetry is as ever a restless and witty inquisitor, peeling back the layers of the world."

Review quote

"Salamun's poetry is not so much a response to particular experiences, no matter how socially transgressive they may be, but is experience itself." -- Andrei Codrescu
