    "The Drama Review: NYU journal of performance studies" This book is both an act of endurance and a performance script, written as the performance was taking place. The performance elements become the actual syllables of the haiku.His particular brand of Chicano Zen Buddhism is completely urban. And just like emael's life, his haikus are urban literature. When you read emael's haiku you become aware that he is hyper aware of making daily decisions, of ritualizing things even though (or perhaps because) he may not know necessarily how they are going to turn out, and developing a system for living as performance.~Guillermo Gómez-PeñaTDR, MIT Press
