Melinda Camber Porter's critically acclaimed novel, Badlands, coming in November. The novel that Peter Matthiessen called "an achievement" and Joyce Carol Oates called "very strong, very intellegent" will be published by Blake Press in a beautifully illustrated harcover edition.
In 1982 Melinda sat down with the future Nobel Prize Winner, Octavio Paz, in Caernavaca, Mexico.
"As a reader it is a delight to follow Octavio Paz and Melinda Camber Porter's thoughts, to ride the wave that carries us to the shore of language." - Scott Chaskey, poet
"This volume provides great insight, not only into Octavio Paz's vision of the world, but also, happily, into that of Melinda Camber Porter." - Laura Vidler, Chair and Professor of Spanish, Univeristy of South Dakota.
