Target Practice by Carvens Lissaint


“Carvens Lissaint is a hurricane talent, and there isn’t a young person in this America who shouldn’t know his art. With TARGET PRACTICE, Lissaint interrogates the lived experience of race in America from a wholly unique perspective—from center stage of a sold out Broadway theater house to the backseat of a routine traffic stop—and with a rare dexterity that both calls out and calls in. Uncompromising and musical, this book is an ode to the subtleties of survival. These poems belt.”—Dr. Adam Falkner
