Alive at the End of the World
Saeed Jones - 2022-09-13
Goodreads Rating
"Alive at the End of the World" by an award-winning author tackles everyday apocalypses with haunted poems that glint with laughter. With verve, wit, and elegant craft, it explores the public and private betrayals of life as we know it and strips away American artifice to reveal the intimate and collective grief bearing down on us all. Jones confronts the everyday perils of white supremacy, identifying routine moments that open chasms of hurt. Through cultural icons and personal experiences, he ushers readers toward the realization that the end of the world is already here.

@LaddEveritt On Writing. My second favorite book of all time, next to The Toy Collector by @JamesGunn, the guy who made me want to become a writer in the first place.      source
