"With Build Yourself a Boat, Camonghne Felix heralds a thrillingly new form of storytelling, as much investigation as it is song, as broken as it is doused in genuine strength. These poems are packed with embodiments— not depictions— of black female pain, empowerment, memory, and discovery. This is a fantastically tender book, generous in its precision, and thoughtful in its experimentation. This debut does not come quietly or shyly— Felix is an applaudable master of language, inventively carving and pulling at words and sounds to assemble the parts of this story. Here is a voice that commands, insists, reiterates, and consumes— a voice that has earned its right to shout freely, with curiosity and aliveness and heart." —Morgan Parker, author of Magical Negro This is about what grows through the wreckage. This is an anthem of survival and a look at what might come after. A view of what floats and what, ultimately, sustains. Build Yourself a Boat, an innovative debut by award-winning poet Camonghne Felix, interrogates generational trauma, the possibility of healing, and the messiness of survival. Build Yourself a Boat redefines the language of collective and individual trauma through lyric and memory.
