Winner of the 2016 National Poetry Review Poetry Prize, now housed under Dog’s Heart Press
Those People is a book of aftermath, written in and on the dark—the darkness of the screen, the darkness of night, the darkness of a soil alluvial with intimacy and difference, privacy and politics, pleasure and anger, memory and hope. Jenn Marie Nunes’s forming and reforming syntaxes entail a vulnerable yet resolute lifeform probing its own survival under the tides of capital and the logics of extraction, expulsion and erasure—exploring what it might mean to return, to remain, and to reclaim.
– Joyelle McSweeney, author of Toxicon & Arachne

post Katrina culture vultures, gentrifiers and carpetbaggers
spoken through poignant colloquial vignettes
