Pre-order the New Poetry Collection by Crystal Wilkinson

Kentucky writer Crystal Wilkinson has a new poetry collection coming out on August 3rd from the University Press of Kentucky. City Lights is pleased to offer pre-order options for both the hardcover and paperback editions. Perfect Black promises to be a lovely book with illustrations by Ronald W. Davis and a foreword by Nikky Finney.

From the foreword: "In Perfect Black, Crystal Wilkinson walks us back down the road she first walked as a girl, wanders us through the trees that lined the road where she grew up, where her sensibilities as a woman and a writer were first laid bare. In one of the first poems that opens the collection she is a woman looking back on her life, on the soil and mountains that first stamped the particular sound of her voice and she is deeply inquisitive about how it all fell into place: "The map of me can't be all hills & mountains even though I've been country all my life. The twang in my voice has moved downhill to the flat land a time or two." Perfect Black is a book of poems and legends about ancestry, culture, and the terrain of a Black girl becoming. It is a narrow and spacious terrain that enters the bloodstream of this black writing girl's body early. It is a country that she never truly exits even though different zip codes continue to fly through her wild, wondrous, winding life. We read and we hold on too."
