Two Alice James Books Reviewed in Library Journal!

Two titles from independent poetry publisher Alice James Books were reviewed in the April 1 issue of Library Journal! Play Deada brand new collection of poems by francine j harris, was called “raw and punchy as a street fight.” The collection deals unflinchingly with identity, race, and gender politics, and Library Journal praises harris’s “searing, relentless language” and “lyric immediacy.”

The journal also reviewed Driving Without a License by Janine Joseph, calling the book “a gifted writer’s view on an all-American issue,” that issue being immigration. Through poetry, Joseph explores what life is like for undocumented immigrants in America, and how they are able to inform their identities and find a sense of belonging. Driving Without a License comes out on May 10.
