Liz Mc2's Reviews > Brown: Poems
I have enjoyed Young's conversations with other poets on the New Yorker's poetry podcast (he is their new poetry editor) so wanted to read some of his poems. I loved this collection and its reflections on brown--James Brown, Brown v. Board (a case I always forget is, like Young, from Kansas), growing up brown. There's baseball, jazz, 90s hip hop, civil rights. Violence and slights, music and food, love between friends, between father and son.
