U.S.A. / 2011
This is Saeed Jones' debut chapbook of poetry. It's a lovely collection that meditates on love, on youth, on trauma, on things lost, and on things found. He has such powerful control of language, and his ability to capture and meditate upon intimacy is so stunning. These poems are visceral, sensual and refreshingly accessible. Saeed Jones was born in Memphis and graduated from Rutgers with an MFA in Creative Writing. He is currently the Culture Editor at @buzzfeed // Massive thanks to @bryanborland at Sibling Rivalry Press for this fabulous book! Check it out!
