Poetry. African American Studies. "Here is a voice of complete authority: I think of Willa Cather in all her fullness of range and depth, her grief, sureness of step, and ease with life's own half-familiar withholdings. TJ Jarrett pierces the listener with her new—seemingly accustomed, but new—unsettlings; I was more lonely before I heard this voice."—Jean Valentine
