Those Others

Continuing our series of post-election poems, today we share "Those Others" by Jim Moore, from his book Underground.

The Future of Terror / 1

Another day in post-election America, another poem from a Graywolf writer: “The Future of Terror /1” by Matthea Harvey

Mapping a "Culture of Borderless Fluidity"

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, David Szalay’s All That Man Is is a paramount feat in twenty-first century storytelling, exposing the universal implications of lives so particular they can be tracked via Google Maps.

The Great Unrest

Today's poem is D. A. Powell’s “The Great Unrest,” from Useless Landscape, or A Guide for Boys.

“crop white as the smile”

Today's post is from Danez Smith's poem “You're Dead, America.”

“White can’t oust / its own system.”

In the coming days we will be posting passages from Graywolf writers, starting today with Claudia Rankine's very appropriate poem “Sound & Fury.”
