"knife | fork | book has a knack for publishing poetry that one can read endlessly, but this book even surpassed their already high standards! I cannot remember how many times I've re-read this book, especially the final poem rings in my ears with the author's haunting voice. One of the best Chapbooks I've ever come across I strongly recommend it to all lovers of snack-sized poetry."

(from Goodreads)

Stintzi’s The Machete Tourist sings with thoughtful observation and poetic crafting, asking its readers to examine our own sense of identity, prejudices, and – perhaps more importantly – the possibilities available to us to strengthen our network of a more connected spirit of humanity.
