<strong>Finalist for the 2019 National Book Award</strong><br /><br />"By some literary magic鈥攏o, it's precision, and honesty鈥擝rown manages to bestow upon even the most public of subjects the most intimate and personal stakes."鈥擟raig Morgan Teicher, 鈥?I Reject Walls': A 2019 Poetry Preview鈥?for NPR<br /><br />鈥淎 relentless dismantling of identity, a difficult jewel of a poem.鈥溾€擱ita Dove, in her introduction to Jericho Brown鈥檚 鈥淒ark鈥?(featured in the <i>New York Times Magazine</i> in January 2019) <br /><br />鈥淲inner of a Whiting Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship, Brown's hard-won lyricism finds fire (and idyll) in the intersection of politics and love for queer Black men.鈥濃€?lt;i>O, The Oprah Magazine</i> <br /><br />Featured in NPR鈥檚 鈥淚 Reject Walls鈥?

Brown鈥檚 poetic concerns are both broad and intimate, and at their very core a distillation of the incredibly human: What is safety? Who is this nation? Where does freedom truly lie? Brown makes mythical pastorals to question the terrors to which we鈥檝e become accustomed, and to celebrate how we survive. Poems of fatherhood, legacy, blackness, queerness, worship, and trauma are propelled into stunning clarity by Brown鈥檚 mastery, and his invention of the duplex鈥攁 combination of the sonnet, the ghazal, and the blues鈥攊s testament to his formal skill. <em>The Tradition</em> is a cutting and necessary collection, relentless in its quest for survival while reveling in a celebration of contradiction.

<p><strong>A book-length poem about how an American Indian writer can鈥檛 bring himself to write about nature, but is forced to reckon with colonial-white stereotypes, manifest destiny, and his own identity as an young, queer, urban-dwelling poet.<br /><br /><br /><br />A Best Book of the Year at聽<em>BuzzFeed, Interview</em>, and more.</strong></p><br /><p><strong>聽</strong></p><br /><em>Nature Poem</em> follows Teebs鈥攁 young, queer, American Indian (or NDN) poet鈥攚ho can鈥檛 bring himself to write a nature poem. For the reservation-born, urban-dwelling hipster, the exercise feels stereotypical, reductive, and boring. He hates nature. He prefers city lights to the night sky. He鈥檇 slap a tree across the face. He鈥檇 rather write a mountain of hashtag punchlines about death and give head in a pizza-parlor bathroom; he鈥檇 rather write odes to Aretha Franklin and Hole. While he鈥檚 adamant鈥攂ratty, even鈥攁bout his distaste for the word 鈥渘atural,鈥?over the course of the book we see him confronting the assimilationist, historical, colonial-white ideas that collude NDN people with nature. The closer his people were identified with the 鈥渘atural world,鈥?he figures, the easier it was to mow them down like the underbrush. But Teebs gradually learns how to interpret constellations through his own lens, along with human nature, sexuality, language, music, and Twitter. Even while he reckons with manifest destiny and genocide and centuries of disenfranchisement, he learns how to have faith in his own voice.

Nothing is Okay is the second full-length poetry collection by Rachel Wiley, whose work simultaneously deconstructs the lies that we were taught about our bodies and our beings, and builds new ways of viewing ourselves. As she delves into queerness, feminism, fatness, dating, and race, Wiley molds these topics into a punching critique of culture and a celebration of self. A fat positive activist, Wiley's work soars and challenges the bounds of bodies and hearts, and the ways we carry them.

<p><b>Finalist for the National Book Award for Poetry</b><br /><b>Longlisted for the PEN Open Book Award</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>Carmen Gim茅nez Smith dares to demand renewal for a world made unrecognizable</b><i></i><br /><i></i><br /><i>Be Recorder</i> offers readers a blazing way forward into an as yet unmade world. The many times and tongues in these poems investigate the precariousness of personhood in lines that excoriate and sanctify. Carmen Gim茅nez Smith turns the increasingly pressing urge to cry out into a dream of rebellion鈥攁gainst compromise, against inertia, against self-delusion, and against the ways the media dream up our complacency in an America that depends on it. This reckoning with self and nation demonstrates that who and where we are is as conditional as the fact of our compliance: 鈥淢iss America from sea to shining sea / the huddled masses have a question / there is one of you and all of us.鈥?<i>Be Recorder</i> is unrepentant and unstoppable, and affirms Gim茅nez Smith as one of the most vital and vivacious poets of our time.</p>
