In Angels Ride Bikes, Francisco Alarcón invites readers to experience autumn in Los Angeles, where dreams can come true. In the poet's imagination, mariachis play like angels, angels ride bikes, and the earth dances the cha-cha. In this bilingual edition, the images and the poems bring to life the people and places from Alarcón's childhood.
