Hi Appleberry,

Have you read this yet? I know you have a copy since we both picked it up at ALA together! It’s pretty fantastic. I mean, the first part of it was a little lost on me, but the second half, which is more of a collection of poems, had some really wonderful gems. Heartbreaking and beautiful. Danez Smith writes about the intersection of being gay, black, and HIV+ with words so sharp it will cut right through you.

xoxo,

Alan
