    Thank you Edelweiss+ and Haymarket Books for this advanced eGalley of "Black Queer Hoe". embarrassing white folks and f*ckboys is my american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am not your therapist or here to validate that one time you stood up to your grandpa by telling him c...

    I know I am not the intended audience for this book, but I enjoyed it. It deserves to be read by the people who see themselves in the poems and the people who don't share those experiences (and who, like me, shouldn't say half the words in the book). Britteney Black Rose Kapri knows wh...

    One of the many fun things about reading this in public is when an old white dude insists on knowing what you're reading, so you tell him and watch the horror-confusion wash over him, slowly, from his New Balance sneakers all the way to his balding pate. I would read a granola recip...

    I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review and wow, this book. Preorder it now because it deserves to be read all over by everyone. That said, I feel very aware in writing this review that Black Queer Hoe isn't written *for me*. It's very clear that Black Ros...

    finally! experimental poetry i understand! everyone i know irl - every black person anyway - talks just like it. it's so refreshing to see in a poetry book. sometimes - most of the time - i don't reread poetry books unless i'm upping my reading goal or an extended edition has been rele...

    Perfect. And if you get a chance to see Kapri read live, fight tooth and nail to get there. I'll leave the last word to her, from "a reading guide: for white people reading my book": "embarrassing white folks and fuckboys is / my american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am ...

    I had the privilege of attending a reading of Britteney's work at our book festival this month. I got a copy of the book afterwards. I'm reminded of the early 2000s when I first fell in love with spoken word poetry, particularly those writers who managed a plethora of emotions and expe...

    Unapologetically raw, Black Queer Hoe is beyond good. "Embarrassing white folks and f*ckboys is an american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am not your therapist or here to validate that one time you stood up to your grandpa by telling him colored was outdated. don't applaud ...

    Not for the faint of heart, Britteney's collection of strong Black female poetry showcases a booming voice that dares you to ignore it. I laughed out loud and gasped a few times, but that's exactly the point--don't look away from any of these poems! These are in-your-face observations ...

    Beautiful, powerful words. Read it. Buy a copy for your sister, your girlfriend, your favorite person. "Like all black Chicago women I have been preparing my womb to carry a stillborn. A baby to grow but not man. " ...

    Run to get this book, order it, get it delivered to all your devices just read it some kinda way right now. ...

    I know I am not the intended audience for this book, but I enjoyed it. It deserves to be read by the people who see themselves in the poems and the people who don't share those experiences (and who, like me, shouldn't say half the words in the book). Britteney Black Rose Kapri knows wh...

    One of the many fun things about reading this in public is when an old white dude insists on knowing what you're reading, so you tell him and watch the horror-confusion wash over him, slowly, from his New Balance sneakers all the way to his balding pate. I would read a granola recip...

    I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review and wow, this book. Preorder it now because it deserves to be read all over by everyone. That said, I feel very aware in writing this review that Black Queer Hoe isn't written *for me*. It's very clear that Black Ros...

    finally! experimental poetry i understand! everyone i know irl - every black person anyway - talks just like it. it's so refreshing to see in a poetry book. sometimes - most of the time - i don't reread poetry books unless i'm upping my reading goal or an extended edition has been rele...

    Perfect. And if you get a chance to see Kapri read live, fight tooth and nail to get there. I'll leave the last word to her, from "a reading guide: for white people reading my book": "embarrassing white folks and fuckboys is / my american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am ...

    I had the privilege of attending a reading of Britteney's work at our book festival this month. I got a copy of the book afterwards. I'm reminded of the early 2000s when I first fell in love with spoken word poetry, particularly those writers who managed a plethora of emotions and expe...

    Unapologetically raw, Black Queer Hoe is beyond good. "Embarrassing white folks and f*ckboys is an american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am not your therapist or here to validate that one time you stood up to your grandpa by telling him colored was outdated. don't applaud ...

    Not for the faint of heart, Britteney's collection of strong Black female poetry showcases a booming voice that dares you to ignore it. I laughed out loud and gasped a few times, but that's exactly the point--don't look away from any of these poems! These are in-your-face observations ...

    Thank you Edelweiss+ and Haymarket Books for this advanced eGalley of "Black Queer Hoe". embarrassing white folks and f*ckboys is my american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am not your therapist or here to validate that one time you stood up to your grandpa by telling him c...

    I know I am not the intended audience for this book, but I enjoyed it. It deserves to be read by the people who see themselves in the poems and the people who don't share those experiences (and who, like me, shouldn't say half the words in the book). Britteney Black Rose Kapri knows wh...

    One of the many fun things about reading this in public is when an old white dude insists on knowing what you're reading, so you tell him and watch the horror-confusion wash over him, slowly, from his New Balance sneakers all the way to his balding pate. I would read a granola recip...

    I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review and wow, this book. Preorder it now because it deserves to be read all over by everyone. That said, I feel very aware in writing this review that Black Queer Hoe isn't written *for me*. It's very clear that Black Ros...

    finally! experimental poetry i understand! everyone i know irl - every black person anyway - talks just like it. it's so refreshing to see in a poetry book. sometimes - most of the time - i don't reread poetry books unless i'm upping my reading goal or an extended edition has been rele...

    Perfect. And if you get a chance to see Kapri read live, fight tooth and nail to get there. I'll leave the last word to her, from "a reading guide: for white people reading my book": "embarrassing white folks and fuckboys is / my american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am ...

    I had the privilege of attending a reading of Britteney's work at our book festival this month. I got a copy of the book afterwards. I'm reminded of the early 2000s when I first fell in love with spoken word poetry, particularly those writers who managed a plethora of emotions and expe...

    Unapologetically raw, Black Queer Hoe is beyond good. "Embarrassing white folks and f*ckboys is an american pastime. this book isn't an invitation. i am not your therapist or here to validate that one time you stood up to your grandpa by telling him colored was outdated. don't applaud ...

    Not for the faint of heart, Britteney's collection of strong Black female poetry showcases a booming voice that dares you to ignore it. I laughed out loud and gasped a few times, but that's exactly the point--don't look away from any of these poems! These are in-your-face observations ...

    Beautiful, powerful words. Read it. Buy a copy for your sister, your girlfriend, your favorite person. "Like all black Chicago women I have been preparing my womb to carry a stillborn. A baby to grow but not man. " ...

    Run to get this book, order it, get it delivered to all your devices just read it some kinda way right now. ...

    This collection was not for me. However, I highly recommend heeding the author's advice and reading it aloud. It is there that one can appreciate the rhythm... the poetry... in this collection. ...
