Staff Reviews


This debut poetry collection explores the current African American experience in America. Issues around exoticism, racism, and feminism pervade Parker's polished poems. The author weaves in pop culture icons, hip hop, jazz, personal history, and politics for an inspired look at the intersections of lust and rejection, oppression and resistance, mythology and history. Highly recommend!
