Editorial Reviews

Review

"Black offers a personal perspective on Queens, New York, in wide-gauged, acutely observed, conversational poems that often feel like stories or essays. The result is not so much nostalgia as re-creation, affording us the particularities of the setting."
 
Library Journal
 


"Ryan Black has written poems of enormous urgency for our time: at once a blistering critique of racism and xenophobia in America, and an equally blistering critique of the high- and middle-brow condescensions that sequester us all in cultural spheres that might as well be holding cells. . . . In a dark time, mindfulness and generous connection are the only possible recourse. Death of a Nativist gives me heart."
—Linda Gregerson, from her Introduction to his chapbook Death of a Nativist
 


"Ryan Black is an exquisite craftsman whose material, I think, is time. The sounds it makes: of a speaker losing and accumulating breath in his attempts to record a personal and familial history of Queens, New York. That record is fleeting, fugitive, shaped by, and interested in, white, racialized (and thus violatory) conditions. These elegiac, capacious poems carry conflicting assertions. They are poems of reckoning and ‘awful silence.’ What species of fire can such friction create?"

—Aracelis Girmay



“Plenty of poems are written about Manhattan and Brooklyn but not many about the outer boroughs of New York City. Ryan Black's excellent poems grow from his experience of south Queens, a place of varied ethnicity and economic classes, and such landmarks as Victory Field and Forest Park. That’s to say: a part of the City unknown to most tourists.”

—Ed Ochester
