PRIME named Poetry Foundation Staff Pick of 2014

H. Melt, the Poetry Foundation's education and youth services assistant, says of Prime: Poetry & Conversation (2014): "This collection fights against the erasure of black queer poets by featuring the poetry of Darrel Alejandro Holnes, Saeed Jones, Rickey Laurentiis, Phillip B. Williams, and L. Lamar Wilson (all of whom were chosen by Jericho Brown), alongside their conversations about topics such as mentorship, religion and the body. Together, their voices act like a chorus, strengthening each other while still maintaining their own uniqueness and individual styles. Jericho Brown’s The New Testament and Saeed Jones’s Prelude to Bruise are the perfect complements to Prime, making up three of the best poetry books of 2014."
