Incantatory activism

June 18th, 2020

In response to spoken word activist Jillian Christmas’s debut book, The Gospel of Breaking (Arsenal $14.95), novelist David Chariandy described her texts as “incantatory and disarming, sensitive and cerebral, fiercely defiant and courageously tender.” Her poems are expressive of her family history, queer lineage and “the political landscape of a racialized life.” 9781551527970
