Praise

“Young is one of the most important poets of his generation. Encompassing 20 years of his work, the collection draws from and deepens the African American poetic tradition. Young brilliantly conveys the struggles and triumphs of those oppressed by slavery, economic hardship after emancipation, Jim Crow laws and prejudice that still tinge life today…Tremendous depth and breadth…builds toward the gorgeous work from ‘Book of Hours,’ where the speaker deals with the loss of his father and his own impending parenthood.”
—Elizabeth Lund, Washington Post
 
“Young has become one of the poetry stars of his generation.”
—Craig Morgan Teicher, Los Angeles Times
 
“Extensive and impressive…Young crafts voices that speak to the pleasures and pains of African-American lives, including his own…[his] often stunning confessional lines…will move the reader with their lyric starkness.”
