Poetry. African American Studies. "Fueled with ecstatic rage and syncopated with jazzed-up pistons and B-bop timing belts, T. J. Anderson's RIVER TO CROSS is a long ride and deep plunge into the American subconscious. Lyrical, linguistically inventive, and deadly serious, Anderson wields surrealism to create surprising metaphors and revelatory dream symbols for our age, for the struggles our spirits and bodies engage. Attuned to 'you who are off' and taking the pulse of 'that red bud that brews/the blood in bloom, ' RIVER TO CROSS is a momentous achievement worthy of our attention and celebration"--Khaled Mattawa
