Winner of 2017 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize, River Hymns examines the complexities of the values, contradictions, and secrets of a Southern family. These poems reflect on the rich legacy of a young Black man's ancestry: what to hold on to, what to leave behind and what will always haunt. The connection between the land personal history echoes throughout the world of River Hymns, which is filled with ghosts, spells and the promise of a new beginning.
