    "The Sand Garden / El jardin de Arena" This review is by David Constantine, in 'Modern Poetry in Translation' (Third Series, Number Ten, 2008, p185): True to their name, Hafan Books are a place of refuge. More, they are a place where refugees of various kinds can collect themselves and say what their lives are like. Humberto Gatica is a poet and photographer who, after ten months in a brutal jail, got out of Pinochet's Chile, finally settling with his wife in Swansea. His poems face one another in two thin columns, Spanish and English, across the opening pages, black and white photographs interleaving them. Stark, exact, unsentimental. A cold wind whistles through them: breath nevertheless. If Brecht's three gods still trail the earth looking for reasons why they should not obliterate mankind, they will surely spare us a while longer should they light on Swansea Bay Asylum Seekers Support Group and the fortifying sanctuary of Hafan Books.
