"Defiance, movement, and renewal are three words that come to mind when reading PELICAN HEART. While the poems themselves defy an easy classification, the collection proposes a new way to 'travel' and 'read' the Caribbean world and beyond"
- Ivette Romero-Cesareo

Estos poemas, con su oido claro, su hocico observador y su ritmo de tambor innombrable, anuncian la posibilidad de un Caribe major”.
- Nancy Morejon, escritora, Cuba

Sobrecoge la fuerte y sonora oralidad de sus versos, con la cual rinde tributo a la tradicion africana de sus origenes. Escucharle es remontarse al Africa, al canto y grito del hombre y la mujer negra, al sensual rumor de lo subyacente en nuestra insularidad.”
- Chiqui Vicioso, escritora, Republica Dominicana
