Born in southeastern Brazil, Lucas de Lima is the author of Wet Land (Action Books, 2014) and the chapbooks Ghostlines (Radioactive Moat, 2012) and Terraputa (Birds of Lace, 2014). He is a contributing writer at Montevidayo. In a review of Wet Land, Marty Cain writes, “Rather than hiding behind an aesthetic mask, de Lima fully embraces artifice, deliberately taking ownership of the inherent violence in poetic representation.” De Lima is a PhD candidate at the University of Pennsylvania.
