Complementing these new additions are García Lorca's witty and insightful letters to his family describing his feelings about America and his temporary home there (a dorm room in Columbia's John Jay Hall); the annotated photographs that accompany those letters; a prose poem; extensive notes; and an interpretive lecture by García Lorca himself.
