San Diego Poet Explores Immigration In 'The Flayed City'
Hari Alluri, author, "The Flayed City"
The themes of memory, moving through differing cultures, landscapes and the weight of masculinity run through the work of San Diego poet Hari Alluri's new book, "The Flayed City".
Alluri immigrated from Nigeria to Canada at the age of 12 and now lives in San Diego.
His newly-published poems have received great praise, including from U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera who said Alluri, "carries a new quiet brush of multi-currents, of multi-worlds to paint this holographic life-scape."
Alluri talked about being a poet in the 21st century and the inspiration behind "The Flayed City" Tuesday on Midday Edition.
