Description

Poetry. African American Studies. "From the 'sweet scat' and 'jump rope hymns' of wonder and wistfulness to the transformational, lithe, sexually charged energy of jazz, Hurdy-Gurdy earnestly explores the differences between what we want, what we get, and what we must be willing to pursue at any cost. This is an exciting book—at once fluid, shapely, and steady as stone—whose tensions lead us to an authentic meditative wholeness."—Mark Cox [Amazon.com]
