Poetry and Pupusas

Javier is a Salvadoran poet that I read about in a New Yorker magazine article. I was intrigued by his youth, his harrowing immigration story and his poetry that delves into those experiences.

He was very game to chat as he’s a food lover like you wouldn’t believe! We talk about his grandmother's cooking, Hawaiian restaurants, and karaoke love in “Poetry and Pupusas”, Episode 19 of Something About Food?.

Javier Zamora was born in El Salvador and migrated to this country at the age of nine. A Wallace Stegner fellow at Stanford, he is the winner of numerous awards and fellowships; his first poetry collection, Unaccompanied, was published in September by Copper Canyon Press.  You can find him on Instagram and Twitter @jzsalvipoet.

This is not a plate of pupusas; it is, however, the salad I had in Cambodia that we chatted about. Go listen and find out all about it.
