I don't say this lightly--this book is a MASTERpiece. Interpolating familiar images of domesticity, intimacy, and modern civilization into completely unfamiliar and unsettling landscapes, this collection is able to make you feel powerless to the words you are reading. You are not in control. But by the end, you will feel something break. You will find yourself free -- free from the master. One of the best collections this year.

This collection is of a scope unlike any I have read before. It contextualizes the history of poetry in a way that transcends time and makes the book impossibly larger than itself. An intertextual masterpiece, Reeves directly speaks through Western exclusionary white canon in the context of 21 century Black Americans. He provides rich inclusion of Black American poetry as a way to level the two traditions -- reconfiguring canon to challenge literature's racist past and to immortalize essential poets of color. This book is about what it means to be seen as "alien," "inferior," and "violent" in your own homeland. It is about reclamation.
