Product Details

About the Author

Trinidad born and Queens bred, Cheryl Boyce-Taylor is a poet and visual and teaching artist. The author of two collections of poetry, Raw Air and Night When Moon Follows, and a recipient of a Partners in Writing grant, Boyce-Taylor served as poet-in-residence at the Caribbean Literary and Cultural Center in Brooklyn. Her poems have been anthologized in various publications including Def Poetry Jam's Bum Rush the Page, Poetry Nation, Rogue's Scholar, In Defense of Mumia, Bloom, Catch the Fire!!!, and Aloud: Voices from the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Boyce-Taylor is the recipient of the 2015 Barnes & Noble Writers for Writers Award.


Boyce-Taylor's bold new collection slyly and directly engages topics that have preoccupied major poets for centuries-mortality, cultural heritage, blood belonging, alienation, love, and the challenge of holding nature to the page. Readers will be enriched and enlivened by the grace and compassion at the heart of this casually polyphonic artist." - Colin Channer, author of Providential and The Girl with the Golden Shoes "Cheryl Boyce Taylor will sweep you up in her pages with the scent of language. She will present you with what the craft of poetry can offer: precise, glowing, and painfully beautiful language set to a cadence that moves inside the body even after the poem has closed. A stunning contribution to contemporary poetry!" - Kimiko Hahn, author of Brain Fever
