Product description

Book Description

'This is a marvelous book. See for yourself. Morgan Parker is a fearlessly forward and forward-thinking literary star.' Terrance Hayes

Morgan Parker's highly anticipated, fierce new collection of poetry uses political and pop-cultural references as a framework to explore 21st century black womanhood and its complexities

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

'There is not a more daring artist, or anyone I'd rather read in the twenty-first century, than Morgan Parker'
Kiese Laymon, author of How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America

'Morgan Parker has a mind like wildfire and these pages are lit. I can't recall being this enthralled, entertained and made alert by a book in a very long time'
Jami Attenberg, New York Times bestselling author of The Middlesteins

'This is a marvellous book. See for yourself. Morgan Parker is a fearlessly forward and forward-thinking literary star'
Terrance Hayes, winner of the National Book Award

'I can and have read Morgan Parker's poems over and over . . . She writes history and pleasure and kitsch and abstraction, then vanishes like a god in about 13 inches'
Eileen Myles, author of Chelsea Girls

'Morgan Parker's poems do not let you sit comfortably and idly and safe, but take you on an adventure like no other . . . Get on board'
D. A. Powell, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
