Praise

“You are carrying in your hands a Black woman’s heart.”—Jericho Brown, author of Pulitzer Prize winner The Tradition

“Mans takes up the tools of Brooks and Sanchez into her good hands and chisels us an urgent and grand work, proving why she’s the favorite poet of all the girls in the back of the bus.”—Danez Smith, author of National Book Award finalist for poetry Don’t Call Us Dead
 
This book is a haven for all the Black daughters out there, hoping to make sense of the power and powerlessness in their bodies, the connection to others’ bodies, and the moments of everyday life that comprise so much of our identities.”—Morgan Jerkins, New York Times bestselling author of This Will Be My Undoing
 
These poems both explode and glimmer on the page. They demand to be read, to be shared, to be revisited time and time again.”—Clint Smith, author of NAACP Image Award finalist Counting Descent
 
Writing in surefooted verse, Mans refuses to allow our stories to be misunderstood; she needs the world to get it for once…So if you find yourself lost in a past that predates you or a city that erased you, these poems promise to look for you—damn where you been. They will welcome you home and fix you a plate, quietly, like any mother would.”—Dr. Alysia Harris, Pushcart nominated author of How Much We Must Have Looked Like Stars to Stars

“The collection is so steeped with tenderness, it feels intimate and wholly relatable—we hear our mother’s warnings, our grandmother’s wisdom, and our lover’s regret beneath her words. This is a phenomenal debut.”Maisy Card, author of These Ghosts Are Family
