Ironbound Fados Reviews

  • Sam

    How wonderful it is to read about the neighborhood I grew up in. I always longed to see myself and my people in stories, in words, in poetry, despite my mixed feelings on my heritage. Beautifully written.

  • Jeremy Mifsud

    Carla is such a good writer! The poems flowed from one to the other like song. The imagery was beautiful & I'm so thankful to Carla for transporting me to some of those scenes. I love how she incorporated Portuguese culture into these poems & I strongly urge you to read <3

    "Leaving to return is a rhyme we learn as immigrants

    and in this city, we sing saudade as thin as the green plastic bags that catch

    on the branches of small, emerging trees, roots

    digging into this earth that is, after all,

    mostly iron at its core."

    Wow, there is so much to be said of this work. This is simply put a beautifully complicated tribute to a place and time.

  • Katya

    I'm the author's ex-roommate's ex-roommate's ex-roommate, and I can vouch for the thoughtfulness and generosity of her lambent wit.

  • Mariel

    Exquisite.

    I personally know the author of this book, Carla Sofia Ferreira and just want to say although I pose as the biggest distraction to the class everyday and make her life harder than it should be, she returns every morning tired yet eager to aid students with their educational growth.

    I personally know the author of this book, Carla Sofia Ferreira and just want to say although I pose as the biggest distraction to the class everyday and make her life harder than it should be, she returns every morning tired yet eager to aid students with their educational growth. Staying after hours constantly and grading papers non stop, she ultimately poses as the most strongly willed person I know and never backs down no matter the situation or problem. It’s people like this that deserve the best, and Ms. Ferreira deserves even better than that. So I encourage you with all my heart to read it, because it’s not often that people as amazing as this get recognized and are given a chance.

    Thank you

    IDK, thought this would contain sheet music and lyrics given the title. Biased since I am the author's parents' only child. Minus one star because it's not Kaveh Akbar's Calling A Wolf A Wolf and no book will ever be that good. : P

    The recurring themes in this collection tied the pieces together so beautifully. The introductory pages were absolutely gorgeous. Some of these pieces were very wordy, but in such a way that they didn’t seem cumbersome at all. There was just enough detail that the pictures were vivid, but you could tell that each word had been chosen with care. Gorgeous collection!
