Valeria Luiselli's first novel, Faces in the Crowd (Coffee House Press), reminds us of what it's like to be young and in love with literature. It's a casual exploration of what people are like who have fallen under the spell of poetry. We talk about Pound, Zukofsky, imagism, Spanish poetry, and the art of translation.
