Craig Santos Perez reviews José Garcia Villa
In a photograph taken at the Gotham Book Mart on November 9, 1948, Edith and Osbert Sitwell are surrounded by many important writers of the time: W.H. Auden, Elizabeth Bishop, Marianne Moore, Delmore Schwartz, and Randall Jarrell, to name a few. Among them is a writer who remains less well known today than many of his contemporaries: José Garcia Villa.
