Quererme en La Luz by Farrah Fang is officially available for pre-order and is the first chapbook in Abode's 2024-2025 lineup! 


Book Description: Quererme En La Luz is an unapologetic journey, a spiritual philosophy, a militant manifesto, a harmonious and chaotic retelling of the author’s experiences as a trans Latina navigating the gulf coast of Texas. This collection of poetry reflects the fluid divinity essential to trans womanhood while remaining grounded to the perceivable world and all its dangers, its trite wonders too.


About the Author: Farrah Fang is an artist, writer and performer. Her poems appear in The Odessa Collective, The Texas Review and Raspa Magazine. She is a Mexican-American trans woman from Houston, Texas and an advocate for trans liberation.


Praise for Quererme en La Luz


"In Quererme en la Luz the transexual faggy poetic voice stops licking the floors of the institutions that submit her into a minor yet hyper policed existence. Mouth to mouth, the reader comes across a tongue that enchants, threads and savours on the everyday joys of marginal life. These poems open wounds in my mouth that i can’t stop licking. These wounds are portals where i am assured that even after all the witch burnings, their knowledge and heaviness remain in the air for me to grab and dress myself with."


—F. Tibiezas Dager, visual artist and author of Homosexual encounters with Pancho Jaime.


"Farrah Fang writes poetry that breaks a subject, voice, or consciousness down before metamorphosing them into flight with rigorous language that dances, dazes, and paces through the brutal, surreal, and fantastic. Quererme En La Luz is a debut that mesmerizes, wrecks, and empowers where lines such as “Yes I am the Goddess / you've always prayed to / No I do not get to be human” and “You are not the anomaly upon the land; the / air is already polluted” can be equally as devastating as they are liberating. I’ve been a fan of Farrah Fang in Houston, and I’m incredibly excited for more and more people to indulge in her work as an indelible emerging voice to follow in arts and literature."


—Reyes Ramirez, author of El Rey of Gold Teeth


“Farrah Fang is the switchblade poet. Gutteral and seductive, the poetry pokes and twists at your definition of Texas, teases a trans woman out of the landmass’ girth. What do we do with the spirit-light of a trans woman when “her body is a celebration, her body is the end”? We pray with bare feet in a junkyard. We conjure a resistance and never let go. Welcome to the DNA that is a world ancient and urban. Welcome to the portrait of an earth-bound goddess strutting’ them streets.”


—féi hernandez, author of HOOD CRIATURA & forthcoming (UN)DOCU MENTE
