Across three sequences, Joshua Bennett's new book recalls and reimagines social worlds. Bennett opens with a set of autobiographical poems that deal with themes of family, life, death, vulnerability, and the joys and dreams of youth. The central section, 'The Book of Mycah,' features an alternate history where Malcolm X is resurrected from the dead, as is a young black man shot by the police some fifty years later in Brooklyn. The final section are poems that Bennett has written about fatherhood, on the heels of his own first child being born last fall.
