Rilke Shake 's title, a pun on milkshake, means in Portuguese just what it does in English. With frenetic humor and linguistic innovation, Ang#65533;lica Freitas constructs a temple of delight to celebrate her own literary canon. In this whirlwind debut collection, first published in Portuguese in 2007, Gertrude Stein passes gas in her bathtub, a sushi chef cries tears of Suntory Whisky, and Ezra Pound is kept "insane in a cage in pisa." Hilary Kaplan's translation is as contemporary and lyrical as the Portuguese-language original, a considerable feat considering the collection's breakneck pace.

"No fabled saudade here, but the sound of an ocarina underwater in the Orinoco." --Paul Hoover

"Wry, painfully funny and moving, Kaplan's translation captures the formal invention and deadpan beauty of the original perfectly." --Sasha Dugdale
