Solito: A Memoir by Javier Zamora

In his debut, Javier Zamora lets a poetic voice shine throughout as he weaves a timeless memoir for the new American immigrant diaspora. Solito recounts Zamora's journey as a child traveling from his native El Salvador, crossing three borders by land and sea in order to be reunited with his parents in the U.S. Zamora effortlessly illustrates the fear and wonder of his perilous journey, and humanizes an experience most of us could not fathom. —Josué.

Patriarchy Blues: Reflections on Manhood by Frederick Joseph

In his new book, part memoir and part stream-of-consciousness poetry, Frederick Joseph reflects on the state of masculinity of Black men in contemporary America. Drawing from deep personal experiences, Joseph’s work tackles issues of toxic masculinity, transphobia, violence, and internet culture. Joseph calls out his heroes for their shortcomings (“The Blood Of Forty-Four”) and often puts the lens on his own anxiety and pursuit of perfection (“The Rot in The Garden”). —Josúe
