Books for changing the world

In this innovative work of self-portraiture and poetry, Reprise looks at 2020 with an overarching question: what does it mean to grapple with an America that has let so many down and continues to?

Golden meditates on Blackness, nationalism, legacy, navigating what it means to live both in the North and South, and its impacts on gender expression. We’re invited to witness and learn from the interior revolution it requires to fully live.

Lovers of Golden’s expansive A Dead Name That Learned How to Live—finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Poetry, 2023—will find echoes of sonic and vernacular play, with a stark vulnerability that confronts readers to look deeply at times of great and, possibly, liberatory uncertainty.
