Transmitter and Receiver
This is my first book of poems. It will be out this March from Nightwood Editions. You can sample a few poems here.

Here is a sweet thing poet Nick Thran said about it:

“What I receive from these transmissions is a convincing sweetness, a weird wisdom. This book reminds me of David Berman’s Actual Air, but it’s warmer. Raoul Fernandes writes like a night school teacher teaching us ‘something about night itself.’ It’s an engaging class, an occasionally mind-altering class, and I finished it feeling more hopeful and human.”
