    Renee Gladman stretched the very boundaries of language to spin this nearly indescribable tale. In it, we follow a traveler to the land of Ravicka, where newcomers struggle to perform the most basic social acts in a world defined by sound, gesture, yellow air, and unexpected intimacy. If you've ever been an outsider or had to fight to be understood, you'll find this book poignantly relatable. If you're craving a poetic read that stretches your mind, you'll find yourself reaching for the rest of the series too.

    The force of these poems sent me flying over the edge of what I thought I knew about language and power. Reed takes seemingly everyday spaces (the body, St. Louis) and turns them into a kind of electric shock on the page-- he writes about sex, race, masculinity, violence, and (in)justice without giving you room to hide from the truths he uncovers. Any reader who ventures into these pages will find herself irrevocably changed-- brace yourself.
