Read full description of the books:
Poetry. African American Studies. "Sassy and funky, serious and sly, the poems in Allison Joseph's VOICE travel through a rich and varied landscape. From childhood griefs to adult desires, the classroom to the bar, these poems cut and cajole, tackling the most serious and the most sultry with a graceful eloquence. Like a soloist who rises above the rest of the choir, the voice in these poems peals with clarity and beauty, leading us from a place of familiarity smack dab into the sublime"--Stacey Lynn Brown.
