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
