Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this collection, Vecchione and Raymond have gathered 64 poets from all over the world, their poetic voices as diverse as their experiences. Yet, they hold one element in common: a belief in dignity as an essential human right. The poems explore identity, migration, immigration, war, belonging, race, class sometimes on their own, but often at intersections. In "Mamma," Emtithal Mahmoud confronts a man who objectifies her dark skin by claiming an affinity: she lets him know exactly how little right he has to make such a claim. In "quaking conversation," Lenelle Moïse announces, i want to talk about haiti, and lists the ways humans have wreaked more damage than nature. And Yosimar Reyes laments the dearth of memories of a childhood before he crossed the southern border into the U.S. in "Undocumented Joy." Most poems in this are raw with passion, variously eloquent and verbose, mostly in blank verse with few creative risks involved. But form is secondary to content here, and these stories should resonate with youth who feel life deeply.--Amina Chaudhri Copyright 2019 Booklist"
