Books Acquired Recently: Birthday Edition

Yesterday my partner took me to the Strand to buy me some books for my birthday. Here’s what I got:

Baraka, Amiri. SOS: Poems 1961-2013. New York: Grove Press, 2014.

I love Baraka’s work and have taught it in numerous courses. I already own a number of his books, which is why I didn’t buy this mammoth collection when it first came out, but I found a copy for $20.00, so decided it was time.

Myles, Eileen. Chelsea Girls. 1994. New York: Ecco, 2015.

—. Cool for You. 2000. New York: Soft Skull Press, 2017.

—. For Now. New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 2020.

I began reading Myles’s poetry over the past few years and really enjoy it, so I decided to check out some of their prose.
